Buddhism meets modern western culture at the Dublin Buddhist Centre!
(Please note this is slightly different from the printed programme)
4pm – Intro to Yoga
5pm, 6pm – Intro to Meditation
7pm – Talk – ‘The Buddha & his Begging Bowl’
The image of the meditating Buddha reminds us that there is another way to live, an alternative to the hustle-bustle of our lives. The begging bowl that often accompanies this image reminds us of a simpler way of life, of how we can live with less and yet have more joy.
8pm – Intro to Meditation
9pm – Talk – ‘Leonard Cohen: Troubadour, Psychonaut, Buddhist Monk.’
