The Great Stupa of Universal Compassion


The Great Stupa of Universal Compassion Exhibition Centre has a vast collection of sacred Buddhist relics on display that have been offered from many Buddhist traditions including Burmese, Chinese, Mongolian, Thai, Tibetan and Vietnamese.

The Great Stupa is being built near Bendigo and when complete will be 50 metres square at its base and nearly 50 metres high. This will make it the largest Stupa in the Western World. The architecture, engineering and construction of the Great Stupa are based on the requirement for the Great Stupa to last for 1,000 years.

The Great Stupa structure is now well over half completed and already a popular attraction for people of all traditions.

The Jade Buddha for Universal Peace is the largest Buddha carved from gemstone quality jade in the world. The Jade Buddha is over two and a half metres high and sits on an alabaster throne of one and a half metres high.

The Jade Buddha is on tour throughout major cities in the world before being set up at The Great Stupa in Bendigo. Currently nearly seven million people from the US, Canada, Vietnam, Australia, Europe, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan, Sri Lanka, Japan and India have attended Jade Buddha world tour.

Significance of The Great Stupa is that culturally, it is the largest Buddhist Stupa in the West and largest Jade Buddha in the world. Archaeologically it is based on Borobudur, Indonesia, a ninth Century UNESCO listed world heritage site and 15th Century, Gyantse Stupa, considered a 'chief wonder' of the Tibetan Buddhist world. And iconically it is a major domestic and international tourist attraction symbolising Australia's multicultural heritage.

Bendigo Talk: War from a Woman's Angle


In a War from a Woman's Angle, Jeannine Baker reveals the little-known stories of the trailblazing women journalists who have reported on war. Since Agnes Macready travelled to South Africa in 1900 to write about the Boer War for the Catholic Press, Australian women have fought for the right to cover conflict.

In 1914, Louise Mack defied the orders of Lord Kitchener to travel to Belgium, where she witnessed the fall of Antwerp. Katharine Susannah Prichard reported from close to the front at Wimeraux. These pioneers of war reporting carved a path for new generations of female foreign correspondents who have built upon their legacy.

This talk is part of the Shrine of Remembrance Regional Lecture Series and will be held at Bendigo RSL. Arrive 5.30pm for a 6pm start. Entry is by donation. Bookings are essential.
