Here is a short podcast with members of the Irish Sangha discussing what has motivated them, and what continues to inspire them, to practice the Dharma.

Talk by Vessantara: Padmasambhava Practice – a Personal Unfolding

By Vajrashura on Tue, 19 Jun, 2018 - 19:33

In this wonderful personal talk about Padmasambhava, Vessantara talks about his connection with the strange figure of Padmasambhava.

On the way, he gives an insight into what it’s like to relate to these Buddha and Bodhisattva figures deeply, and how we can do this.

And he explores the effects doing this can have on our mind, our heart and our Dharma lives.

Talk given in the Dublin Buddhist Centre on Tuesday 25th April 2017....

It was a busy month in Dublin!

In addition to our BAM programme we asked our Sangha to sign up to one of three challenges: going vegan for the month, exploring how to divest from fossil fuels or taking the plastic challenge.  Quite a few people took up one (or even two!) of these challenges, with the plastic challenge being by far the most popular.  I look forward to hearing how people got on with their pledges for the month.

Happy 50th Birthday Triratna!

By Vajrashura on Thu, 6 Apr, 2017 - 13:12

This week is the 50th anniversary of the founding of our community, the Triratna Buddhist Community!

On the evening of April 6th, 1967, around 24 people gathered in a room in London where they recited a ceremony specially written by Sangharakshita to inaugurate this new Buddhist movement.

On Sunday 9th April, 10am - 5pm, we’ll be...
