Welcome to

Diamond Way Buddhist Group: Dallas

The Diamond Way Buddhist Group of Dallas is part of the international non-profit network of over 600 lay Diamond Way Buddhist centers of the Karma Kagyu Lineage, founded by Lama Ole Nydahl and under the spiritual guidance of H.H. the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa, Trinley Thaye Dorje.

We provide a relaxed environment where people are welcome to investigate authentic buddhist teachings and meditations. We always present a basic introduction for newcomers, and the meditations are guided in English. Lay practitioners volunteer for all the tasks associated with the running of the center, which is held together by idealism and friendship.

Upcoming events

See the Diamond Way Austin Events Page for events in the Texas region.
