Bawnboy and Templeport History, Heritage and Folklore

In 1999 Chris Maguire wrote a book called Bawnboy and Templeport History and Heritage Folklore. Before he passed away in 2007 he had made it known that he would like to see his book made available on the internet for everyone to see and read it.
Bawnboy and Templeport History and Heritage Folklore has been out of print for a good few years and I am delighted that it is now available on the internet. Many guests staying here over the years have asked where they could get a copy…..now I can direct them to the Bawnboy.com web site where they will be able to read Bawnboy and Templeport History and Heritage Folklore in their own time

Jampa Ling Tibetan Buddhist Centre, Bawnboy, Co. Cavan Events Summer 2012

‘Jampa’ and ‘Ling’ are Tibetan words meaning ‘place of loving kindness’. The volunteers at Jampa Ling and Rinpoche’s students try to live up to this name by providing a place of  tranquility, calm and understanding. One’s life may not always fit together well, and peace and tranquility and a warm welcome can sometimes help.

EVENTS TAKE PLACE ALL OVER THE SUMMER MONTHS……please visit Jampa Ling Tibetan Buddhist Centre for the full listing of events

Wandering through the Weeds…Jampa Ling Tibetan Buddhist Centre, Bawnboy, Co Cavan.

Saturday 21st April 10am -4.30pm. This one day workshop is in two sections

In the morning Judith will lead the group around any available – and relatively unkempt – garden, lane, field, or park.    As plants are found, she discusses the culinary, domestic and medicinal uses to which each plant, (predominantly wild ones), is put. Worksheets are provided for notes. In the afternoon, Judith does the ‘cookery demonstration’, during which she shows the methods for making infusions, decoctions, compresses, poultices, tinctures, macerated oils and ointments. She gives clear information on terminology and recipes, (or formulas). There is a further sheet of notes that complements the afternoon’s work. Judith keeps the day informal and encourages relevant questions and comments about our herbal heritage.   Participants are asked to bring weathproof clothing, including boots and note-books and pens, especially for the afternoon.

Please bring vegetarian lunch to share …Workshop costs …€45 and must be booked in advance

FEBUARY 10th – 11th 

Ven. Rinpoche will be teaching:  The practice, using the third stage of the Path.

Practice of Bodhicitta. Without having had teachings, without having contemplated and meditated on the precious nature of human existence, on death, on the karmic law of cause and effect, on the nature of samsaric suffering, on refuge and on the Four Noble Truths, it is very difficult to have a realistic attitude towards Bodhicitta.
