Our Dublin temple is maintained from day to day by brahmacārīs (monks) and initiated devotees who reside in the ashram - a refuge for those living according to regulative principles and without the influence of the outside world's social activities.
One who engages in full devotional service, unfailing in all circumstances, at once transcends the modes of material nature and thus comes to the level of Brahman.Bhagavad-gītā 14.26
Donations to the temple, such as contributions to the donation box, help maintain this spartan lifestyle. Currently a very small living space must host four permanent beds plus improvised arrangements for travelling monks and pilgrims to our temple community. This shortage of living space is a factor in our search for a new temple:New Dublin Temple project
NOTE (last updated 2013-06-26): currently overnight residence in our ashram has been suspended while we assure its rigorous compliance with habitability requirements, which is understandable considering that the dormitory is improvised in a building conceived as office space. This does not affect day-to-day activities which have been declared perfectly safe and suitable for our usual numbers of attendees.
