In December 1993, Venerable Master Ru-Sun was invited by disciples to teach Buddhism in Australia. The disciples responded with great enthusiasm and purchased a 32 acres plot of land that is bound by a creek, old pine trees and beautiful grassland. Yun Yang Temple (Australia) Inc. was established in April 1995.
Yun Yang Temple (Australia) Inc. is located at 6-10 Reservoir Road, Narre Warren North, 1 Yun Yang Temple (Australia) Inc. is located at 6-10 Reservoir Road, Narre Warren North and is about 40 minutes’ drive from the Melbourne CBD. Nestled in 32 acres of parkland and gardens, it is surrounded by fauna and flora. Being far away from the hustle and bustle of city living, it provides a conducive environment for Dharma practice. After basic renovations, the existing farm house was converted into a Ch’an practise Temple. In order to accommodate different devotees, Pure Land practice was also introduced. Due to the ever-increasing number of followers and visitors, the existing facilities were unable to meet demand. At the same time, there was a strong request from the devotees for a formal main shrine. Under these circumstances, the Yun Yang Temple committee decided to initiate construction.
The Main Shrine Building is 14 meters high with the Reception and Lecture Hall on the ground floor. The Main Shrine is on the first floor and houses the Buddha statues and Thousand Buddha Mandala. The Meditation Hall is located next to the Main Shrine Building and the Dining Hall is on the other side. There are also 40 meditation huts for retreat requirements. The Buddhist Chinese garden consists of a white marble pagoda, bridge, pavilion, beautiful plants, lotus pond and a 1.7 kilometre track. All of this provides an excellent environment for spiritual cultivation.
