Diamond Way Buddhist Center Boston 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

In alignment with local and state recommendations to use "social distancing" to slow the spread of COVID-19 and protect our friends, families, and community, we have temporarily suspended our public meditations and will reopen once conditions allow.

Public Meditation - Tuesdays and Fridays at 7pm

Our public program consists of a introductory talk into Buddhism followed by a short guided meditation with explanation. Newcomers are invited to come and questions are always encouraged. No previous experience with Buddhism or meditation is needed.
