The Mollymook centre is understood to be one of only two on the NSW coast south of Wollongong. The other is in Bermagui.

Buddhists in the Milton-Ulladulla region are describing the opening as the next growth phase in Buddhism locally and say the Manjushri Centre will help them meet community needs.

It will provide a place for Buddhists to meet and meditate and to continue their teachings in the local community.

Buddhists say it was a "big step" to get to this point but hope the centre will pave the way for future expansion.

In particular, they say, a whole new generation of young people learning about meditation and the basic principles of Buddhism through local schools will have somewhere to turn in years to come.
