MEC (Mahmud Es’ad Cosan) Foundation is an independent, Australian charitable organisation of international calibre. It was formed to ensure that the non-discriminatory philosophy and ideals of love, compassion, helpfulness and the legacy of the great intellect, scholar, visionary humanitarian, philosopher, social justice activist and spiritual leader, Professor Dr. Mahmud Es’ad Cosan, were carried out.

The Foundation was formed in Australia in 2002, just after Professor Cosan passed away. Since then, the Foundation has been an advocate for many disadvantaged communities and provided financial, social, psychological and spiritual support for the implementation of various humanitarian projects. Our overarching goal is to focus on social justice in society and address the physical, material, social, cultural, psychological and spiritual needs of needy communities.

MEC Lifestyle Project is in initiative of MEC Foundation, formed in 2014 to continue the lifestyle of Prof. Dr. Mahmud Esa’d Coşan. About Us MEC Lifestyle is set to put Professor Cosan’s philosophy and value system and his principles of love, brotherhood, peace, cooperation, solidarity and sustenance of national and spiritual values that embrace the whole of humanity without discrimination.

In accordance with Professor Mahmud Es'ad Cosan's lifestyle, MEC Lifestyle aims to raise generations that are able to think critically and analytically, become protectors and supporters of truth and social justice and prepare themselves and their loved ones, to escape the darkness of this world, both in this world and in the hereafter.

The key aspects of this 'lifestyle' MEC includes:

  • Showing compassion towards all living things
  • Becoming protectors and supporters of needy communities
  • Preparing for the struggles of both this world and the hereafter
  • Providing ongoing and truthful education to all people
  • Struggling against dishonesty and corruption
  • Addressing serious social and environmental problems of society
  • Developing innovative and critical thinking
  • Acting in a kind manner and showing concern for all living things


MEC Lifestyle Centre is a little different from the traditional places of worship and community centres. The centre has been methodologically designed to provide for the needs of modern day people. Firstly, it comprises a main place of workshop, allowing all those who enter its doors to feel a sense of deep connection with their Creator.

Partitioned dividers and separate bathroom facilities enable the centre to cater for both genders, as well as those with a disability, such as mobility issues or hearing difficulties. In accordance with the final messenger's advice that ‘every believer should obtain knowledge’, the centre also comprises an educational building, equipped with the latest audio visual equipment. Additionally, the centre has guest facilities, for special occasions.

The Centre has also not forgotten children, and boasts a unique and modern playground where children can learn teamwork and cooperation, but most importantly, can appreciate the ‘lifestyle’ we have at the centre.   Finally, with solar energy on buildings, environmentally friendly landscaping and a 15 thousand litre capacity over ground and a 20 thousand litre capacity underground rain water tanks, the centre is considered a true friend to the environment.
