Blue Mountains Insight Meditation Centre is owned and managed by the
Buddha Sasana Association
of Australia Inc, a non-profit organisation that was founded in 1981
and incorporated as an association in 1986.
The association is endorsed as an income tax exempt charitable entity
by the Australian Taxation Office and operates a building fund recognised
by the ATO as a deductible gift recipient. Blue Mountains City Council
has exempted us from rates as a charitable organisation. The association's
income is primarily derived from fees paid by people who attend courses
at the Centre and from donations.
A Management Committee that meets every two months manages the association.
To facilitate day to day decisions, and as a focus for organising the
Centre's volunteers, there is a House Committee that meets once
a month after Monday night meditation. A resident community of up to
three people including the manager carries out the day-to-day work
of the Centre.
