Welcome to the Irish centres of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON), which have been established for this primary purpose:
1. To systematically propagate spiritual knowledge to society at large and to educate all people in the techniques of spiritual life in order to check the imbalance of values in life and to achieve real unity and peace in the world.A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, Seven Purposes of ISKCON
Learn about His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupāda, Founder-Acarya of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness — his origins, his amazing life story, and the achievements that have spread the Krishna Consciousness movement all over the modern world.
Our Dublin temple supports a growing number of spiritual activities every week, including classical Vedic scripture and yoga studies, devotional service by ashram dwellers and community members alike, and a weekly celebration with song and feasting which is free and open to the public.
Our spiritual beliefs are based in the ancient Vedas of India, written in Sanskrit 5,000 years ago and dating back through prehistory, answering eternal questions that are just as pressing in modern life. You are welcome to attend our free evening classes to progress through introductory Vedic studies in a friendly atmosphere.
Kirtan, or chanting together, is at the centre of our spiritual practice, as is the sharing of spiritualised food (prasādam). You will find all of these at our free Sunday Feast which is open to all. Most days of the week also have yoga classes, and every year we look forward to our Ratha Yatra parade festival.
Dublin Vedic Temple Project
In the next several years our Dublin Temple community is hoping to move into a more permanent building in the City Centre, to increase Lord Krishna's presence in our city for many years to come. Please click to find out more about our project goals & how you can be involved.
