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 Thursday evenings at a comfortable community space. All are welcome to join us for the main guided meditation enjoyed in our centers worldwide.

No experience is necessary and these evenings are free of charge. For 1st timers we will give a brief introduction about Diamond Way Buddhism and happily answer your questions. Face coverings are preferred, but optional.
