What is ‘voidness’? For Buddhists the one meaning of ‘voidness’ is always wisdom – the wisdom that knows the difference between what ‘seems to be’ and ‘what really is’.

Our problem is ignorance, illusions, delusions….the point of Dharma is to find the truth. When we find the truth the illusion collapses. We see the voidness of that illusion. The illusion we were under was devoid of any reality whatsoever.

Over this weekend, Ken will present the topic of ‘voidness’ – that sometimes ‘most difficult’ element of Buddhism for us to grasp and try to bring some clarity and understanding to it.

This weekend will follow on from the 2015 course, but no need to have attended the previous weekend as Ken will re-visit the topic, hence ‘RE-LOADED’!!!

Friday 23rd 7.30pm, Saturday 24th & Sunday 25th 11am – 4.30pm

Suggested Donation: €10 evening talk, €35 per day weekend (includes simple lunch)

Donations allow us to bring teachers such as Ken to Dublin, and help keep the Centre running. If finances are a genuine obstacle please give whatever you can afford.
