What we're about
“Highest truth is highest bliss.” Lama Ole Nydahl
We are the Seoul branch of Diamond Way Buddhism, one of the largest and most popular lay Buddhist organizations in the Western world. We meet regularly for meditations and invite Buddhist teachers.
Diamond Way (Skrt. Vajrayana, Tib. Dorje Thegpa) meditations combine the highest teachings and most effective methods given by the Buddha 2,600 years ago. Buddha gave these special methods to a handful of particularly talented students that naturally showed deep trust in their own Buddha potential. These methods are sometimes referred to as the fast track to enlightenment.
Diamond Way Buddhism was founded in 1972 by Lama Ole Nydahl and his wife Hannah following the wish of His Holiness the 16th Karmapa, Ranjung Rigpe Dorje. It uses traditional Tibetan Buddhist methods of the Karma Kagyu lineage in a modern, Western setting accessible to all. Through our 650+ meditation centers and courses worldwide, many people are able to use and benefit from Buddha’s timeless methods ( http://www.diamondway-buddhism.org/ ).
