New Year in Kagyu Samye Dzong Dublin

Dear Friends,

Welcome to 2023….we wish you many Tashi Delegs and may this auspicious new year of the Water Rabbit bring blessings to all. A time of renewal and transformation – the first two weeks of the lunar New Year are sometimes called the ‘waxing moon of miracles’ leading to Chotrul Duchen (the Great Occasion of the Buddha’s Performance of Miracles) this is the perfect time to do retreat and make offerings, as the positive effects of actions are greatly multiplied at this time. Join us on Tuesday 21st February at 6.30pm for a very special ‘Shower of Blessings’ Tsok puja to help usher in this new year.

We have plenty of events in this coming year. We will be truly blessed with visits from Drupon Khen Rinpoche May 22nd and 23rd (this event has unfortunately been cancelled as Rinpoche has had to return urgently to Nepal), Ringu Tulku Rinpoche June 26th ,27th and 28th, and Lama Zangmo July 22nd and 23rd, as well as Clive Holmes and others to come this year – check out our Events page for more information!

We recently hosted a visit from Clive Holmes who gave precious teachings on ‘Changing the Habits of a Lifetime’ with much inspiration and influence from Akong Rinpoche, a connection that is very important to our Centres. It was a wet and miserable weekend outside but inside there was nothing but smiles and joy. And we look forward to seeing Clive again in the Autumn.

The Centre is fully open with our regular practice programme in place – everyone is welcome to attend any of our sessions and we look forward to welcoming you.

Following the instruction of our Abbott and Director, Lama Yeshe Losal Rinpoche, we are expanding Kagyu Samye Dzong Dublin to help us bring the Dharma to an even greater number of people and build the first Tibetan Temple in Dublin.

We hope that you will all join with us on this journey. The growth of the Centre was the dream of our Founder, Akong Tulku Rinpoche, and on his last visit to Dublin in April 2013, he told us that this was what we have to make happen. This will require effort and support, both financial and physical, from the whole community of Kagyu Samye Dzong Dublin, to realise his dream of a bigger Centre for Dublin.

To enable us to achieve this goal we are looking for people to become ‘Supporters of Kagyu Samye Dzong Dublin’ – we are looking for 108 participants – who will agree to commit to contributing just €5 per month (or more if you can manage it). This will provide us with a regular income stream to allow us to meet repayments. If you are in the lucky position to be able to make a more significant financial commitment to the Centre – either in the form of a once-off donation or an interest-free loan, please let us know.  Contact us by phone 01 4537427 or by email info@buddhism.ie to find out how you can donate. You can also download a  Membership form and Membership leaflet, print it off, fill in and send it to your bank, or use the details to set up a standing order online

Looking forward to seeing you in the Centre soon!!!
