Diamond Way Buddhist Center La Crosse 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

First Monday of the month at 7 PM

Our public program consists of an introductory talk on Buddhism followed by a short guided meditation with explanation. No previous experience with Buddhism or meditation is required to attend, and questions are always encouraged.
