Buddhism is an ancient tradition comprising a set of teachings and practical methods that help us develop profound inner richness. These teachings were given by the historical Buddha in northern India over 2500 years ago and have been transmitted from teacher to student in an unbroken lineage that extends to the present day.
At Diamond Way Buddhism, we practice the methods used in the Karma Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism. The Karma Kagyu teachings were given by the historical Buddha, Sakyamuni, and have been preserved in a pure and authentic form through direct transmission from teacher to student, continuing unbroken to the present day.
In 1969, Ole Nydahl and his wife Hannah met the XVI Karmapa Rangjung Rigpe Dorje (1924 – 1981), historically known as the first incarnate Lama of Tibet, becoming his initial Western students. In 1972, the XVI Karmapa requested them to teach, establish centers, and ensure that the teachings remained vibrant and appealing to intelligent, critical, and lay individuals in the Western world. Since then, the teachings of Diamond Way Buddhism have successfully made their way in the West.
The Karma Kagyu school provides practical teachings that can be applied to everyday life. There is a wide array of methods for developing the inherent richness and clarity of the mind, whether through formal meditation or through everyday activities.
By using these methods, one learns to experience the world from a self-liberating and enriching perspective, leading us to discover and ultimately develop our full potential for the benefit of all beings as well as for ourselves.
