Visit of Ringu Tulku Rinpoche 10th September - 13th September 2018 (Time: 12:00 am)

Dear Friends,

RTR-Ireland2016We are delighted to announce the visit of Ringu Tulku Rinpoche this September.

Rinpoche is a regular visitor to Kagyu Samye Dzong Dublin, and we always look forward to receiving him. He is renowned for the simplicity of his delivery of even the most complex of topics, making Buddhism accessible to everyone.

Rinpoche will give teachings over three evenings in Kagyu Samye Dzong Dublin, Monday 10th, Wednesday 12th and Thursday 13th September, beginning at 7.30pm each evening. The subject will be confirmed shortly – watch this space.

Space in the Shrine Room is limited so we would encourage you to book your place in advance. We will do our best to accomodate everyone in the Shrine but will have overflow space with sound and vision! Book your space now on 01 4537427 or email info@buddhism.ie

The suggested donation is €15 per evening session – this is to help cover the costs of bringing Rinpoche and his attendant to Dublin, and also for us to make an offering to Rinpoche. However please do not let finances be an obstacle.

If you are able to assist before and during the visit, we always need help with preparations of the Centre, Shrine Room and Lama’s Room, as well as cooking for Rinpoche and hosting during the evenings. Let us know if you are able to help out – call 01 4537427 or email info@buddhism.ie

Ringu Tulku Rinpoche is a Tibetan Buddhist Master of the Kagyu Order. He was trained in all schools of Tibetan Buddhism under many great masters such as HH the 16th Gyalwa Karmapa and HH Dilgo Khentse Rinpoche. He took his formal education at Namgyal Institute of Tibetology, Gangtok and Sampurnananda Sanskrit University, Varanasi, India and has served as Professor of Tibetology in Sikkim for 17 years. His doctoral thesis was on the Ecumenical Movement in Tibet.

Since 1990 he has been traveling and teaching Buddhism and meditation at more than 50 Universities, Institutes and Buddhist Centres in Europe, USA, Canada, Australia and Asia. He also participates in various interfaith dialogues. He authored several books on Buddhism as well as some children’s books both in Tibetan and European languages.

Tibetan Medicine Clinic 22nd September - 24th November 2018 (Time: 9:30 am - 5:00 pm)

Traditional Tibetan Medicine uses a holistic approach to health and well-being. It does not offer a quick fix to relieve symptoms, rather it aims to address imbalance in the body and mind. It can be used on its own or in conjunction with Western medicine. Tibetan medicine recognises the influence of dietary, psychological, environmental and lifestyle factors on the balance or imbalance of the body and mind. It aims to achieve health through balance.

Traditional Tibetan Medicine is safe and is appropriate for anyone. It can be used on its own or in conjuction with Western medicine.
