What we're about
The Edmonton Diamond Way Buddhism group (http://www.diamondway.org/edmonton/) belongs to the Karma Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism, founded by Lama Ole Nydahl (http://www.lama-ole-nydahl.org) and under the spiritual guidance of H.H. the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa, Trinley Thaye Dorje (http://www.karmapa.org).
Interested in learning Buddhist meditation?
If you want to learn and meditate as we do, you are more than welcome to come. You don't have to be a member or a Meetup user in order to come, this group is for information purposes only. But if you join us you will receive occasional notifications about our events. Meetup RSVPs are also not required for all of our events.
There is no charge for the guided meditation classes. The Buddhist centre is funded by donations and from optional membership fees from regular members.
The meditation methods used are from the Karma Kagyu (http://www.diamondway-buddhism.org/diamond-way/karma-kagyu-lineage/), a lineage of Tibetan Buddhism that goes back 1,000 years. The presentation is fresh and free from cultural baggage.
Program: 1st Wednesday of each month
Introduction to Buddhism, followed by guided meditation with opportunity for Q&A. We begin the evening with a basic introduction to Diamond Way Buddhism. This is the perfect time to come if you haven’t been to our centre before. Your host will spend about a half hour explaining the basics of Diamond Way meditation and you’ll have some time to ask any questions you may have. Recommended for Newcomers.
