Diamond Way Buddhist Center Denver 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.
Wednesdays at 7:30pm
Fridays at 7:30pm
Sundays at 6:00pm
Our free public meditations are preceded by a 10-minute introduction to Buddhism. Our main practice is the Guru Yoga meditation on the 16th Karmapa. This meditation is guided in English and involves visualization and mantra recitation, allowing space, clarity and joy to naturally arise. If it is your first time visiting our center please come 15 minutes early for a brief introduction.
There is a relaxed social atmosphere in the center, refreshments are provided, and questions are encouraged. These weekly meditation evenings are free of charge; there are no prerequisites and beginners are welcome. We have a selection of books, meditation booklets, and malas (meditation beads) in our dharma shop.
