Buddhism meets modern western culture at the DBC!
Wherever in the world Buddhism has been practised, over its 2,500 year history, there has been a dialogue between the essential spiritual aspects of the tradition and elements of the local culture.
We are in a fascinating phase of Buddhist history where, for the first time, there is a meeting of this tradition with modern western culture.
On Dublin Culture Night we will be exploring aspects of this cultural interchange including an opportunity to learn meditation and yoga.
Note that no booking is required for any of these events, but the spaces are on a first-come, first-served basis.
