A Buddha Way to Cultivate your Mind 

A Path to Reduce Suffering and Attain Inner Peace

Buddha Way Cultivation Centre was established in 2015, located South-east of Melbourne, Australia. Our founder and spiritual director Ren Yi Shi Fu (known as Master Yi) is an ordained senior monk, from the Lin Ji Lineage of Chan School of Buddhism.

Chan, from Sanskrit dhyana or jhāna (meditation), is a Chinese school of Mahayana Buddhism. It evolved from the teachings of Siddhartha Gautama and developed in China from the 6th century CE onwards. Chan is the originating tradition of Zen Buddhism. 

The practice focus is on personal development and enlightenment of the mind in the present life; with the emphasis on meditation, intuition, teacher-student interaction, practicing within the context of daily life for the benefit of oneself and the others. 

So how are we different, and what can one expect to visit our centre and learn from Master Yi? 

Master Yi offers a unique style of teaching that is practical and easy to apply; his method of delivery is flexible. With his kindness and generosity, he can teach according to an  individual’s situation and needs.

Our centre’s programs are contemporary and cover a wide range of topics that are relevant to our daily lives. Our aims are to guide and support people to progress in their Buddhist practice, and to find peace in life.

Students and members have reported that they have greatly benefited from Master Yi’s personal and caring guidance.

We welcome you to join us for this precious experience of learning and practicing.

The most beneficial thing that can happen to us is to have been in the presence of a great teacher, because we pick up the vibration by being in the physical presence of that state of peace and complete surrender.

When the Buddha gave his disciples a flower, it was symbolic of the transmission of energy. If we have been in the presence of a great teacher, who radiates this energy we will never be the same.
