Non for profit Buddhist organisation offering Buddha's highest teachings
Diamond Way Buddhism
There are currently 11 centres in Australia, in most major cities and some regional areas. Lama Ole Nydahl founded and directs these and more than six hundred Diamond Way Karma Kagyu Buddhist groups and centres worldwide. All the centres are under the spiritual guidance of the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa, Trinlay Thaye Dorje.
The people running the centres and taking part in the centres’ activities are lay Buddhist practitioners. They work or study, while integrating Diamond Way teachings and meditation into their daily lives.
Members share responsibility for guiding group meditations and giving explanations about Buddhism. Their work is unpaid and based on idealism and friendship. Some students also give public talks and interviews about Buddhism on radio and television.
