When visiting a Buddhist center for the first time, you may expect to have your questions about Buddhism answered, be shown a guided meditation suitable for beginners, and have time to socialize with the other practitioners.

Different Buddhist centers offer various programs. Our larger centers hold meditation courses and lectures held by our Karma Kagyu lamas, and all of them give regular talks and explanations by Lay Buddhist teachers. There is always an opportunity to learn and practice the meditation on the 16th Karmapa, which is short enough for busy Westerners to incorporate into their schedule, and at the same time an extremely effective way to train their mind.

The centers were founded by Hannah and Lama Ole Nydahl under the spiritual guidance of His Holiness the 16th Karmapa. All our centers are directed by Lama Ole Nydahl under the spiritual guidance of His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa Trinley Thaye Dorje.

In France, Diamond Way Buddhism centers are located in Paris and in provinces.
