Lecture by Sergio Ayala - "Buddhism in the modern world"

Rose Garden Branch Library
1580 Naglee Ave, San Jose, CA 95126

Diamond Way Buddhist Group San Jose 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

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 welcome. The entire program lasts approximately one hour, and is free of charge.
