Tara Kadampa Meditation Centre
Welcome to Tara Kadampa Meditation Centre, Dublin. The Centre was founded in 1994 by the renowned Buddhist meditation master and author Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche.
Tara Centre is located in Dublin and provides a peaceful and relaxed environment in which people can discover the benefits of meditation and modern Buddhism for themselves.
We hold regular classes and courses in Dublin and at other venues around Ireland. In-depth weekly study programs, chanted prayers and retreats are also provided for people who want to deepen their understanding of Buddha’s teachings.
The Centre is run by a team of friendly volunteers and there is usually someone at hand who can answer your questions and tell you more about the Centre. You can experience the tranquility of the meditation room, browse our book and gift shop and simply enjoy this peaceful oasis in the city.
We are both a non-profit and a charity (registered charity number: CHY 11413). All work done at Tara KMC is done voluntarily. We provide meditation classes, courses and study programmes to the general public, everyone is welcome. No one gets turned away because they can't afford to pay. All our income goes back into the organisation to fund the provision of these offerings.
We are a member of the New Kadampa Tradition – International Kadampa Buddhist Union (NKT—IKBU) - a global Buddhist religious organisation founded by Kelsang Gyatso in England in 1991. The NKT-IKBU is an international organisation registered in England as a charity, or non-profit. We currently have more than 200 centres and around 900 branch classes/study groups in forty countries. Tara KMC Dublin is one of these centres.
Everyone is welcome!
