Diamond Way Buddhist Group Cincinnati 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

We offer open public meditation every Thursday night at 8:00pm, our new time. A brief talk on a Buddhist subject will be given at 8:00 followed by a guided meditation at 8:15. Meditation is free and open to the public. Please join us each week.
