Vajrashura started practicing yoga and learnt to meditate while in university doing a Masters in High Performance Computing. He firstly did these through university societies, and then in the Dublin Buddhist Centre. He has worked as part of the Centre Team since 2002 and in 2007 he joined the Triratna Buddhist Order.

Since ordination, he’s been one of the DBC’s main teachers, leading many courses, retreats, and events each year, and is concerned with helping people go more deeply into meditation and Buddhism. He also is helping coordinate the new retreat centre project and looks after the DBC finances.

‘On my first meditation retreat I realised that, if I was to be happy in life, my life needed to have a spiritual dimension, that this spiritual dimension would be Buddhism, and that this would be a lifetime path of ever deepening understanding.’

‘This initial vision has still stood true, and it has led by to Ordination and wanting to lead a life dedicated to Buddhism.’

‘For me, meditation and Buddhism are a way of living a truly human life, one based upon connection, empathy, wisdom and love. And a way of making the world a better place.’


Our Teachers

Our classes in Buddhism and meditation are in the most part delivered by ordained members of the Triratna Buddhist Order.
The Order consists of men and women who are themselves living a life of meditation and Buddhist practice, and have been for many years.
