Diamond Way Buddhist Group Davis 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

Public Meditation: Mondays and Thursdays at 8.30pm

Our program consists of a short introductory talk about Diamond Way and Buddhism, followed by a guided meditation with explanation. No previous experience with Buddhism or meditation is required to attend. Questions are always encouraged. The entire program lasts approximately 30 minutes, and is free of charge.

There is no need to call or email in advance but you can surely do so if you have questions.
