In response to public demand we are very happy to present an extra teaching event (and change of venue) to Rinpoche's programme in Dublin - for the weekend 1st - 2nd August. The venue for the weekend teachings will now be The Hilton Hotel, Kilmainham, Dublin 8. Rinpoche will be continuing on the theme of preparing for death through living a joyful life. Growing older brings with it the reality of our own mortality: in the Buddhist tradition this reality is not kept hidden or denied, but embraced, and because of this encourages us to live our lives bravely and fully conscious of our actions, so that we may also face death with the same fearlessness. The possibility of death not being the end, that our living actions may influence the nature of our death and what happens afterwards is a profound idea, providing us with a clue as to the nature of contentment - both in living fully and meeting death - our own, and that of others.
Rinpoche will also be giving a public talk at Our Lady's Hospice at Harold's Cross, on Tuesday 28th at 7.30pm and teach on the Tibetan Book of the Dead at Kagyu Samye Dzong on Inchicore Road, Dublin 8 on the Monday, Wednesday Thursday and Friday evenings, please see previous post for details. He will also be answering questions during the talks, so please come prepared!
Concessions for students/pensioners/unwaged.
