Sign up to our monthly newsletter for center events and news:

Diamond Way Buddhist Center Minneapolis 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

Wednesdays and Fridays at 7pm
Sundays at 6pm

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

Monthly Open House
First Sunday of each month, 5:30pm

We begin the evening with a basic introduction to Diamond Way Buddhism. This is the perfect time to come if you haven’t been to our center before. Your host will spend about a half hour explaining the basics of Diamond Way meditation and you’ll have time to ask any questions you may have.
