Welcome to Diamond Way Buddhism in North America

We are a network of Buddhist meditation groups and centers within the Karma Kagyu Lineage of Tibetan Buddhism. Our centers were founded by Lama Ole Nydahl according to the wishes of the great master H.H. 16th Gyalwa Karmapa.

People come to our centers to learn about Buddhism, develop their meditation practice, and grow among friends.

To learn more about our teachers, practices, and origins, please visit the worldwide website at diamondway-buddhism.org.
