Diamond Way Buddhist Group Berkeley belongs to an international non-profit network of over 600 lay Diamond Way Buddhist centers of the Karma Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism, founded by Lama Ole Nydahl and under the spiritual guidance of H.H. the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa, Trinley Thaye Dorje.

Diamond Way Buddhism offers practical and effective methods to realize mind’s inherent richness for the benefit of all. With an accessible and modern style, it works with people’s confidence and desire, using every situation in life to develop fearlessness and joy. We always present a basic introduction for newcomers, and the meditations are guided in English.

Regular Program

Our room is not available this Wednesday (July 13) and we'll be moving our meditation to Thursday (July 14) this one time only.

We meet every Wednesday at 7pm. The public program consists of a short introductory talk on a basic Buddhist topic, followed by a guided meditation with explanation as desired.
