A HOME FOR THE NBC
For several years there have been concerted efforts to buy a property to house the Nelson Buddhist Centre and some managerial staff. This move would end the NBC's uncertain tenure at Nile Street and create a centre that could be available and operate throughout the day. Many properties have been considered but nothing has quite met the requirements.
The main criterion is that the Centre is located close to Nelson central. The vision is to form a community facility, a place where the Buddha's teaching can be made accessible in an urban setting presented in traditional and contemporary ways.
We now have a sub-committee of enthusiastic volunteers who will be actively searching for a suitable property to buy or lease.
