About Us

Hayagriva Buddhist Centre is a centre for Buddhist learning and practice following the Tibetan Gelugpa Buddhist tradition. It is located in Kensington, a suburb of the city of Perth in Western Australia.

We are affiliated with the The Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT) – an international organisation of 138 centres, monasteries, nunneries, retreat centres, and charitable projects in 34 countries. The FPMT was founded in 1975 by the late Lama Thubten Yeshe (1935 – 1984) and  Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche (1945 – 2023), the organisation consults closely with His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

Our resident teacher since October 2021, Australian Venerable Thubten Chökyi, was ordained in 2006 by Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche having been his student since 1990. Venerable Chökyi has held several senior posts at FPMT centres in Australia and international positions within the FPMT.

Our Centre has been operating for more than 30 years, is a non-profit organisation incorporated under the Associations Incorporation Act 2015 (WA), is financed by donations and run by volunteers.
