Diamond Way Buddhism

Diamond Way Buddhism New Zealand is part of an international network of 650 meditation centres in more than 50 countries around the world in the Karma Kagyu tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. The centres were founded by Lama Ole Nydahl according to the wishes of the 16th Karmapa. They are now under the guidance of the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa, Trinley Thaye Dorje.

Our centers consist of people and families working in full-time jobs, and incorporating Diamond Way Buddhism teachings and meditation into their daily lives.
