About Us

Among many Buddhist centers of various lineages active in the West, there are more than 600 lay Diamond Way Buddhist centers of the Karma Kagyu Lineage which have been started by Lama Ole Nydahl. These groups have a democratic structure and function through unpaid, voluntary work on the basis of idealism and friendship. The members share the responsibility for guiding meditations, answering questions and passing on the teachings.

The Diamond Way opens the most skillful methods of the Buddha to the modern world. Using them one learns to experience the world from a rich and self-liberating viewpoint. Its meditations develop a deep inner richness and lead to non-fabrication and an unwavering mind. They help us to discover and finally unfold all our enlightened qualities for the benefit of all beings as well as ourselves.

What is Buddhist Meditation?

In Buddhism, meditation means "effortlessly remaining in what is". This state may be brought about by calming and holding the mind, when compassion and wisdom are realized, or by working with our bodies' energy channels and meditating on light forms of Buddhas.

The environment is relaxed and informal and people are welcome to hang out after meditation or come a little earlier. All meetups happen at the Diamond Way Center, 3401 Park Ave S in Minneapolis. Meditations are always free, however if you find that this style is a good fit for you, you're free to donate or can choose to partake in the monthly Sangaship/membership program. More information can be seen on our website: www.diamondway.org/minneapolis
