Living at VI

Are you interested in deepening your dharma practice by living at Vajrayana Institute?images

From time to time rooms come up for rent at the centre. If you wish to register your interest and be placed on our waiting list, please complete the Vajrayana Institute Resident Expression of Interest Form.

Here are some criteria that you as a potential resident need to meet:

  • As Vajrayana Institute is a Buddhist teaching centre, you will be expected to live as a lay practitioner in a semi-monastic environment.
  • You will be expected to regularly attend teachings at the centre and be committed to the practice of Dharma. Note that all in-house teachings on the regular VI program are free of charge to residents. You should be a paid-up member of Vajrayana Institute and you must remain so throughout your stay.
  • You will be expected to commit to a minimum of two hours per week service to the centre.
  • To help you determine whether a semi-monastic life suits your personality, there is a trial period of three months for all new residents. At the completion of the trial period and before permanent residency is approved, you will be interviewed to assess your impressions of living here and your involvement in resident activities.
  • Rooms are rented on a single occupancy basis only.
