Diamond Way Buddhism of Karma Kagyu Lineage

The centres of Diamond Way Buddhism of Karma Kagyu Lineage were founded by Lama Ole Nydahl and work under the spiritual guidance of H.H. 17th Karmapa Thinley Thaye Dorje. Karma Kagyu is one of four major Tibetan Buddhist schools which stresses meditation and oral transmission of teachings imparted by the historical Buddha Shakyamuni and afterwards by an unbroken lineage of meditation masters. The Diamond Way Buddhism came to the Western countries in the 1970’s. Today there are about 600 Diamond Way Buddhist centres worldwide.
