Monthly Intro to Buddhism and Meditation
This is the best chance for new people to join us! This is a monthly introduction to Tibetan Buddhism and meditation for everyone. We are lay practitioners of Buddhism, meaning that, unlike Buddhist monks and nuns, we have jobs, partners, and families. Our monthly introduction explains what Buddhism is, and the benefits of practicing Buddhist meditation. We'll be explaining the basics of how to meditate, and conduct a brief group meditation so you can try it for yourself. It is free! No RSVP is required. Please note that we have moved to Newmarket.

Diamond Way Buddhist Centre

17A Remuera Rd, Newmarket · Auckland

What we're about

The Auckland Diamond Way Buddhism group was established in February 2008. Our group practices the teachings of the Karma Kagyu tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. We are part of a network of over 700 centres worldwide which were founded by Lama Ole Nydahl and function under the spiritual guidance of H.H. the 17th Karmapa Trinley Thaye Dorje.

Our centre is friendly places where people can access to Buddha’s teachings, meditate, and participate in centre activities. We offer regular meditation sessions, retreats, and lectures by international Diamond Way teachers.

The people you'll meet here are lay (no rules or vows) practitioners, with partners, families, and full-time jobs, incorporating Diamond Way teachings & meditation into their daily lives. The environment is relaxed and informal and people are welcome to hang out after meditation or come a little earlier.

We offer Dharma talks and guided meditation evenings every Monday at 7:30 pm at 17A Remuera road, Newmarket. There are also public lectures of travelling teachers, and a monthly Introduction to Buddhism for newcomers. More information can be found on our Website ( and in this Wikipedia article. (
