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 — Introductory Talk and Public Meditation
* Wednesday nights are excellent for newcomers. The 2nd and 4th Wednesday of every month features a one-hour lecture.
Thursdays at 7:30pm — Dharma Talk and Public Meditation
Fridays at 7:30pm — Dharma Talk and Public Meditation
Our free public meditations are preceded by a brief 10min talk. Wednesday nights will be an introduction to Diamond Way Buddhism followed by meditation. This is a great night to come if you are new to Diamond Way Buddhism or Buddhism in general. Thursday’s Dharma talk will discuss various topics on the basics of Buddhism.
Our main meditation practice on Wednesdays and Thursday is the Guru Yoga meditation on the 16th Karmapa. This guided meditation is in English and involves visualization and mantra recitation, allowing space, clarity and joy to naturally arise.
