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

We meet at 8pm on Mondays and Fridays at a temporary private residence, unless otherwise posted, see below.
Please call for the location.

On one Monday each month we host an introductory evening at a more centrally located space. Please see our posted events for date and location.
These evenings are about the benefits of meditation and Diamond Way Buddhist methods. The program includes a talk, Q&A, and a guided meditation.

Admission is Free.
