Sub35 Group: You’re Poison, Running Through My Veins

Thursday 11th April 2019
7:30pm - 10:00pm

Led by Sadayasihi, Kevin and Kasey

The Sub-35s group in Dublin has been established in recognition of the need for a space where people aged 35 and under can meet, share their experiences, practice together, and develop meaningful connections and friendships based on the Dharma (the Buddha’s teachings).

The Dublin Buddhist Centre is part of a worldwide Buddhist movement called the Triratna Buddhist Community which has primarily been described as a network of friendships in the Dharma.

Similarly, the Sub-35s vision is that it will be a welcoming place for people interested in exploring meditation and Buddhism with the support and friendship of their peers.

It will also link in with the wider Young Triratna movement via the annual retreat for Young Buddhists  each October in the UK.

“In this world there are only two tragedies. One is not getting what one wants, and the other is getting it” Oscar Wilde.

In this Sub35 evening we will continue our discussion on the mind precepts and the three poisons (kleshas) of craving, hatred and delusion. When we crave a special object or person, we may find that on getting it, we’ve invested it with qualities it doesn’t really have. Hatred can produce paranoia and fear, which is our own projected hatred reflected back to us, and tells us less about the real attitude of people towards us, than it does our own unacknowledged emotions. Delusion or wrong views inevitably lead to more wrong views, their nature is to breed, and once we embrace a wrong view we sink more and more deeply into the morass of mere opinions and speculations.

But the good news is the medicine of the Buddha’s teaching can give us the antidotes to these poisons in the form of the positive mind precepts of tranquility, compassion and wisdom.

Who It’s For

The Sub 35 group is open to anyone who is 35 years or younger and is suitable for all levels of experience. It meets monthly, and begins with meditation, followed by a discussion of Buddhist principles relevant to young people.

In particular, it will explore how practicing as a Buddhist can help transform the world we live in.
