Kagyu Samye Dzong Dublin


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

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
