The Diamond Way Buddhist Center of Chicago is part of an international network of over 678 meditation centers in the Karma Kagyu tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. These centers were founded and are directed by Lama Ole Nydahl according to the wishes of H.H. 16th Karmapa. They are now under the spiritual guidance of H.H. 17th Gyalwa Karmapa, Trinlay Thaye Dorje. Our center consists of people and families, who work full-time jobs, and incorporate Diamond Way teachings and meditations into their daily lives. 

Our members share responsibility for guiding meditations, answering questions, and giving explanations about Buddhism; our work is unpaid and based on idealism and friendship. We hold weekly meditation evenings, which are open to the public and are free of charge. There is a relaxed social atmosphere and questions are encouraged. 

Meditations are guided in English and involve visualization and mantra recitation, allowing space, clarity and joy to naturally arise. Other activities include group readings, teachings and meditation retreats.
