We have put together a beginner’s resource. It is intended to help you gain an insight into Diamond Way Buddhism, but under no circumstances can it replace the oral transmission required to properly begin Diamond Way meditation!

Diamond Way Buddhist Center Edmonton 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 are changing! Our regular Wednesday night program will now begin at 7 PM. Please join us for a short introduction on a Buddhist topic, followed by a guided meditation* with an opportunity for Q&A, each and every Wednesday.

1st Wednesday of each month: 7 PM (New time!)
Introduction to Buddhism, followed by a guided meditation* with an opportunity for Q&A. We begin the evening with a basic introduction to Diamond Way Buddhism. This is the perfect time to come if you haven’t been to our centre before. Your host will spend about a half-hour explaining the basics of Diamond Way meditation and you’ll have some time to ask any questions you may have. Recommended for Newcomers.

Buddhist practise is as practical as it is profound. With the right view, we can learn to use all aspects of our experience, even our busy city life, to gain insight and joy.

* [The guided meditation is the Guru Yoga meditation on the 16th Karmapa, our main meditation practice and is guided in English. It generally lasts around 30 minutes. No prior knowledge of Buddhism is required.]

Meditation on the 8th Karmapa - Only for those who have completed the Foundational Practices**

**[The Foundational Practices or Extraordinary Preliminary Practices (Ngöndro in Tibetan) consist of four meditations done one after another. Each of them are repeated 111,111 times. They prepare one’s mind for more advanced meditation.]
