Bodhi Dhamma Vihara is the home to the first direct sapling of Sri Maha Bodhi of Anuradhapura, Sri Lanka brought to Australia. Bendigo is located around 150 kilometres north-west of Melbourne and is the fourth largest city in the State of Victoria, Australia. Bendigo has become one of the fastest-growing regional centres in Victoria.
We invite you dear friends in Dhamma, to be part of the first ever planting in Australia of the Sri Maha Bodhi sapling (the same Bodhi tree under which Lord Buddha became enlightened).
Jaya Sri Maha Bodhi is the only living sacred relic of Lord Buddha. Buddhists around the world highly regard the Jaya Sri Maha Bodhi as comparable to the Living Lord Buddha. 2300 years ago south branch of the original sacred Bodhi tree in India was brought to Sri Lanka and planted in Anuradhapura, Sri Lanka which has been the only living Bodhi tree directly related to the original Bodhi tree. Bodhi Dhamma Vihara in Bendigo is privileged to be the custodian of the first Jaya Sri Maha Bodhi sapling brought to Australia.
Our Buddha Statue is a replica Buddha Statue at Polonnaruwa Vatadage in Sri Lanka which is created by archeology department of Sri Lanka. This Statue which dates back to the 12th century AD.
