Diamond Way Buddhist Center Madison 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

Sundays & Wednesdays, 8pm

Our public program consists of a short talk on a basic Buddhist topic, followed by a guided meditation with explanation. Newcomers are invited to come on any Sunday or Wednesday. No previous experience with Buddhism or meditation is required to attend, and questions are always encouraged.

Third Wednesday of every month, 8pm

Once a month we give a detailed introductory lecture before our regular public meditation. Join us on the third Wednesday each month for an explanation about Buddhism and meditation. An excellent night for newcomers.

Tuesdays on Campus (during the fall/spring semesters when school is in session), 7:30pm

Our campus night also consists of a short introductory talk about Buddhism and is followed by a guided meditation.
