Opening Dzogchen Beara Temple this July

After many years of meticulous designing, planning, constructing and decorating… this July we will witness the fruition of Sogyal Rinpoche’s vision to open a temple in Dzogchen Beara, Ireland!

This accomplishment would not have been possible without the immense support, prayers and generosity of the Rigpa sangha and supporters of Dzogchen Beara.

This Temple is the first Tibetan Buddhist temple in Ireland, and will be a place for the study and practice of Tibetan Buddhism and in particular for followers of the Longchen Nyingtik cycle of the Nyingma ‘ancient’ lineage. We will also host teachers from other wisdom traditions and extend an open-hearted welcome to all through a programme of public retreats and seminars.

Perched high on the cliffs overlooking the ocean on the Beara Peninsula in County Cork, in south-west Ireland, many Tibetan masters, and almost everyone who visits Dzogchen Beara, comment on the extraordinary qualities of this location – its beautiful natural environment and an atmosphere of profound peace which comes from deep spiritual practice.

The Dzogchen Beara community is looking forward to welcoming many people to experience the Temple. Starting this July everyone can experience this new temple through a rich programme of events (both free and paid), including daily guided meditation, mini-retreats, guided temple tours and dharma talks.
