SPECIAL EVENT

Lama Ole Nydahl will guide a five-day course in Houston, TX from November 27th to Dec 1st. Lama Ole is a meditation master in the Karma Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism and is the principle teacher for nearly 700 Diamond Way groups and centers around the world.

In these courses Lama Ole transmits the Buddha's highest teachings—known in the Kagyu tradition as Mahamudra (Skt.) or the Great Seal—by guiding students through essential texts of the lineage. They point beyond changing experiences to the ultimate nature of the mind.

If you would like to learn more please come to any of our public meditation sessions - we are happy to share more and answer any questions you may you have!

Diamond Way Buddhist Center Houston Downtown 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.
