Diamond Way Buddhist Center Chicago

 
Centre description
The Diamond Way Buddhist Center of Chicago is part of an international network of over 550 meditation centers and groups worldwide, all in the Karma Kagyu tradition of Vajrayana Buddhism. The centers are directed by Lama Ole Nydahl, according to the wishes of H.H. 16th Karmapa. They are now under the spiritual guidance of H.H. 17th Gyalwa Karmapa, Trinlay Thaye Dorje.

The main practice in all our centers is the Guru Yoga meditation on the 16th Karmapa. This meditation is guided in English and lasts around 30 minutes. There is a relaxed atmosphere in the centers, with social time following the meditation and questions are encouraged. Our weekly meditations are open to the public and are free of charge. On the first Monday of every month we also hold an open house with a short introduction to Buddhism, followed by group meditation.
