What we're about

“Meditation is mind’s gift to itself.”

"Buddhism is not something outside, it is not something else. Buddhism is the way you eat, drink, make love, think, feel; all this is Buddhism."
— Lama Ole Nydahl

Diamond Way Buddhism is a network of lay Buddhist meditation centres within the Karma Kagyu Lineage of Tibetan Buddhism, founded by Lama Ole Nydahl and under the spiritual authority of H.H. 17th Karmapa Trinley Thaye Dorje. The meditation centre is a place where people can learn to meditate and receive authentic Buddhist teachings in a friendly, modern context.

Diamond Way Buddhist centres function through voluntary work on the basis of friendship and idealism, offering a regular introduction to Buddhism, guided meditation classes, Buddhist courses, and Buddhist teachings
