What Is Buddhist Meditation?

In Buddhism, meditation means «effortlessly remaining in what is». This state may be brought about by calming and holding the mind, when compassion and wisdom are realized, or by working with our bodies' energy channels and meditating on light forms of Buddhas.

We begin the evening with a basic introduction to Diamond Way Buddhism. This is the perfect time to come if you have not been to our center before. Your host will spend about a half hour explaining the basics of Diamond Way meditation and you will have time to ask any questions you may have.

About Us

Diamond Way Buddhist Center Chicago belongs to an international non-profit network of over 600 lay Diamond Way Buddhist centers of the Karma Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism, founded by Lama Ole Nydahl and under the spiritual guidance of H.H. the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa, Trinley Thaye Dorje.

Diamond Way Buddhism offers practical and effective methods to realize mind’s inherent richness for the benefit of all. With an accessible and modern style, it works with people’s confidence and desire, using every situation in life to develop fearlessness and joy. We always present a basic introduction for newcomers, and the meditations are guided in English.
