Diamond Way Buddhist Meditation Centre in Wrocław

Our centre is one of more than 650 meditation centres established by Lama Ole Nydahl on the 16th Karmapa’s request. At the moment, all the centres function under the guidance of the 17th Karmapa Trinley Thaye Dorje, who is currently the head of the thousand-year-old Tibetan Buddhism tradition of Karma Kagyu lineage.

Karma Kagyu centres are places where Buddhists meet regularly during common meditations and everybody is welcome to visit.

Apart from meditations which take place a few times a week, you can also participate in introductory lectures about the Buddha’s teaching, dedicated for both new people and more advanced practitioners, meditation weekends, workshops and Buddhist art exhibitions.

Buddhism

Buddhism is a set of teachings about mind’s nature that were transmitted by historical Buddha Shakyamuni, who lived and taught 2,500 years ago in northern India. The goal of Buddhist practice is to reach a complete realisation of mind’s potential and to experience lasting happiness –enlightenment. Everyone can realise that and that’s the reason why Buddhism is called a religion of experience. Buddhism consists of many traditions, schools and styles of practice. Diamond Way Karma Kagyu Lineage embraces the most fascinating part of Buddhist teachings and is perfect for independent, fully joyful people.

The best word to describe the Buddha’s teachings is a word he himself used. For 1,500 years these teachings were practiced in India under the name “dharma”, and for the last thousand years as “choe” in Tibet. They both mean "the way things are". Understanding how the things work is a key to the lasting happiness. Buddha himself is a teacher, an example, a friend and a protector. He helps us and all beings to avoid suffering and to experience the states of more and more intense joy and happiness, as well as to lead others to Liberation and Enlightenment. Buddhism is, therefore, something very practical, something you can apply directly in your life. When people asked Buddha what, and why, he was teaching, he was always answering in the same way: “I teach because you and all beings want to reach happiness and avoid sufferings. I teach the way things are”

Lama Ole Nydahl, „The way things are”

Meditation

Meditations in the centre take place every day at 8 pm. Everyone can participate. They last for about half an hour and do not require any neither preparation nor the knowledge of some complicated texts or wearing special clothes. They are guided in Polish and are free of charge.

Every Tuesday, half an hour before the meditation, you can meet with somebody in the centre who can give the basic explanations.

Buddhist meditation is a precise method for working with mind. It calms mind and makes it independent of constantly changing conditions. The goal is to liberate mind from all the weaknesses and limitations and to fully develop all its perfect qualities, in particular a fearless wisdom, a spontaneous joy and an active compassion.
