Culture Night at the Dublin Buddhist Centre

Friday 18th September 2020
4:00pm - 9:30pm

Led by Members of the Triratna Buddhist Order

Culture Night comprises hundreds of events across Ireland and overseas. From the nation’s capital to county town, arts and cultural organisations will open their online doors until late, with hundreds of free events, tours, talks and performances for you, your family and friends to enjoy.

Once again the DBC will be participating in Dublin Culture Night and will be running an exciting programme of events for the occasion.

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 as well as providing an opportunity to learn meditation and yoga.

For more information on events in our area, see the Culture Night Website. You can also download the smartphone / tablet app for Android or Apple.
