Diamond Way Buddhist Group Montreal 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.
Introductory talk and Guru Yoga meditation
Every first Wednesday of each month at 7pm
Suitable for those who are new to Buddhism or wish to learn more. Each session starts with a 30-minute talk on a key Buddhist topic, given by an experienced Buddhist practitioner, and a chance for questions and answers. This is followed by a guided Guru Yoga Meditation.
Guru Yoga meditation
Suitable for newcomers and experienced practitioners. Tuesday sessions (except the first Tuesday of each month) usually start with a 10-minute talk on a Buddhist topic, given by a member of the group. This is followed by a Guru Yoga Meditation, guided by an experienced Buddhist practitioner.
Foundational Practices (tib. Ngondro)
Our Buddhist meditation group also offers you the opportunity to learn about the Buddhist Refuge and the Foundational Practices of Tibetan Buddhism. In a direct and very practical way, these preliminary practices bring forth our potential while removing the veils which keep us from experiencing and expressing our Enlightened nature.
