Ringu Tulku, Dublin Visit. June 2012


'Compassion and love are not mere luxuries. 
As the source both of inner and external peace, they are fundamental to the continued  survival of our species.'          His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama

We are honoured once again to be able to welcome Ringu Tulku Rinpoche to Dublin for 5 days,  from June 20th - 24th 2012, accompanied by  our dear friend Lama Shenga.  For two days of the visit Rinpoche will be teaching on The Four Immeasurables,  at the Hilton Hotel Kilmainham. The 'Four Immeasurables' are also known as 'sublime attitudes':  Loving Kindness, Compassion, Sympathetic Joy, and Equanimity.  To develop these attitudes of mind is considered fundamental to all the mainstream religions, and in Buddhism they are understood to be essential to the awakening mind.  We cannot be Awake if we are imprisoned in a sense of limited selfhood: our Mind can only Awaken when when our hearts are able to fully embrace others with love and joy, without exception, when we no longer see friends or foes but when we see all beings as companions on the path who are each seeking the same thing as us, a life without suffering.  Rinpoche will teach on these meditation practises that are especially powerful antidotes to our habitual tendency of judging others according to our own prejudice.

Venue: The Hilton Hotel, Kilmainham, Dublin 8.
Time:  Sat 23rd - Sun 24th from 10am  - 5 pm both days.
Cost:  All of the proceeds -after costs- from these teachings will be donated to Ringu Tulku's  personal charities.  We suggest a donation of 50 euro for each day [100€ for the weekend]. However if you are in the happy position to be able to give more, that will be greatly appreciated.
The Hilton Hotel is partly sponsoring the event, and will provide reduced fee parking in  their underground car park if you bring your parking ticket to reception. There is also free parking at IMMA, as well as a small amount of free parking on Inchicore Road.  Please be mindful of residents' car spaces.

Rinpoche will also be teaching at Kagyu Samye Dzong on 20th/ 21st/ 22nd June  details here.

May all beings have happiness and the causes of happiness
May all be free from the suffering and the causes of suffering
May they all live in that great impartiality that knows know suffering
May they all rest in equanimity, free from attachment and aversion
