Sub-35’s Group – From the Lotus Realm

Thursday 3rd October 2019
7:30pm - 10:00pm

Led by Sadayasihi, Kevin and Kasey

An In-Person Event

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.

From the Lotus Realm

Visualisation and Imagination in the Indo-Tibetan Tradition


Buddhism is a path of transformation. This means that it is not enough to understand it intellectually. Following the Buddhist path means that we must engage the emotions. Engaging our imaginations and visualisation are a vital ways in which we can direct our emotional energies onto this path.


Indo-Tibetan schools of Buddhism in particular have developed these practices to such a degree that from this tradition we have great archetypal Buddhist imagery and myth. So grand in scale are these practices that approaching them can seem daunting to most of us.

However visualisation and the imagination can be fundamentally transformative and this is what we will be exploring in our next Sub35 event.

We will be joined by Jyotika who will provide a talk on the subject of Visualisation and Imagination in the Indo-Tibetan Tradition. Ordained in 2000, Jyotika has been teaching Buddhism and meditation in Ireland, UK and India.

Today he is involved in setting up and running of the North Wicklow Buddhist Group and has recently given a talk on Leonard Cohen at the Dublin Buddhist Centre for Culture Night 2019 to great success.

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.

When It’s On

We will meet on the first Thursday of each month (though there will be some months when it will be a different Thursday night). See all upcoming events for Young People.

Each night will run 7.30pm – 10pm. The groups will be facilitated by Sadayasihi, Kevin and Kasey.
