What we're about

We are a network of more than 600 lay Diamond Way Buddhist meditation groups and centers of the Karma Kagyu Lineage of Tibetan Buddhism. Our centers were founded by, and under the inspiration and guidance of Lama Ole Nydahl according to the wishes of the great master H.H. 16th Gyalwa Karmapa.

All members and practitioners share the responsibility for guiding meditations, answering questions and passing on the teachings. We meet weekly to learn about Buddhism, develop our meditation practice, and grow among friends.

The Diamond Way practice 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.

The environment is relaxed and informal and people are welcome to hang out after meditation or come a little earlier.
