The Irish Sangha Trust (IST) was established in 2011 to support and foster teaching and meditation practice in the Theravada Buddhist tradition in Ireland. The Irish Sangha Trust is non-profit Buddhist organization, entirely dependent on the generosity of the public for voluntary donations.
Our annual schedule includes regular workshops, retreats and meditation sittings. Events are open to everyone from beginners to experienced practitioners. We welcome you to join our spiritual friends network and experience the profound benefits of meditation practice.
Books to Borrow and Return: Bhikkhu Bodhi's 'In the Buddha's Words', an anthology of texts from the Pali Canon
IST acquired 2 copies of Bhikkhu Bodhi's 'In the Buddha Words', an anthology of texts from the Pali Canon, the earliest record of what the Buddha taught.
You can borrow this book for two weeks at a time: just ask us at any of our Friday meditation sits.
From Wisdom Publications website:
"Divided into ten thematic chapters, In the Buddha’s Words reveals the full scope of the Buddha’s discourses, from family life and marriage to renunciation and the path of insight. A concise, informative introduction precedes each chapter, guiding the reader toward a deeper understanding of the texts that follow.
In the Buddha’s Words allows even readers unacquainted with Buddhism to grasp the significance of the Buddha’s contributions to our world heritage. Taken as a whole, these texts bear eloquent testimony to the breadth and intelligence of the Buddha’s teachings, and point the way to an ancient yet ever-vital path. Students and seekers alike will find this systematic presentation indispensable.
Ven. Bhikkhu Bodhi is an American Buddhist monk from New York City
