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.
IST Sunday School
In response to requests from a number of parents for the IST to hold a Sunday
school for children, we are now ready to commence these classes. This will be a
wonderful opportunity for children to learn the Dhamma at an early age. The
gift of the Dhamma excels all gifts. It is the IST's hope that learning the
Dhamma would nurture these children to be more self aware, inculcate mindfulness
and kindness in their daily life, be able to lead a happy and purposeful life
and become a productive member of society.
