MITRA Youth Buddhist Network - MITRA Buddhist Conferences

MITRA Buddhist Conferences

The MITRA Youth Buddhist Network has, since 2004, organised an annual Buddhist conference. Traditionally held in July, except for 2010 which was held in May to coincide with the Buddhist Festival Month celebrations run by the Buddhist Council of New South Wales.

The MITRA Buddhist Conference is convened by a member, or members, of MITRA inviting local and international learned speakers to give talks and lead discussions at the Conference. Run and managed entirely by volunteers, the MITRA Buddhist Conference relies on the goodwill of the community in keeping the Conference sustainable. Between 2004 and 2009, the food for the Conference was donated by the community including the Friends of Mitra, a conglomerate of elder lay Buddhists, and local Sydney vegetarian restaurants.
