of the Gdansk Diamond Way

Buddhist Center

The Gdansk Diamond Way Buddhist Center belongs to the Karma Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism and is one of 600 lay meditation centres and groups founded by Lama Ole Nydahl which are under the spiritual guidance of His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa, Trinlay Thaye Dorje.

Our centres are not abstract institutions. They are organised on a voluntary, non-hierarchical basis and function through friendship and idealism. They are places where one can acquire the timeless wisdom of Buddha’s teachings, meditate, exchange experience, share in others’ development and take part in group activities. In Poland all of our 75 centres and meditation groups are represented by the Diamond Way Buddhist Association of the Karma Kagyu lineage, officially registered in 1984.

The main objective of the Association is to transmit authentic Diamond Way Buddhist teachings in a modern way.
