Diamond Way Buddhist Center San Francisco 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

8pm Mondays

Our program begins with a short introduction on a Buddhist topic, followed by a guided meditation. The regular meditation is the Guru Yoga meditation on the 16th Karmapa and is guided in English. It generally lasts around 30 minutes.

We have moved out of 110 Merced Ave and meet once a week (only) at The Center SF, 548 Fillmore St which is a rented space, until we find a new physical location for our Center. For more information please contact us at: sanfrancisco@diamondway.org or call us at: (415) 294-1406.
