Diamond Way Buddhist Center Los Angeles 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 Meditations
Wednesday nights at 8pm

Our public meditations begin with a short introduction on a Buddhist topic, followed by a guided meditation in English. No experience is necessary and we encourage the curious as well as well-experienced meditators to join us. There are plenty of opportunities for questions and answers. Doors open at 8pm and meditation starts at 8:30pm. Our program lasts around a half an hour, and there is free street parking around the Center.
