About Edita Berger
Edita Berger will be visiting Exeter and Plymouth in September to give talks on Buddhism. Edita is from Hamburg and has been a student of Lama Ole Nydahl for 33 years. Since Lama Ole asked her to travel and start teaching, she has travelled to many countries sharing the inspiring and timeless teachings of Buddhism. Edita has an independant psychotherapeutic naturopath practice in Hamburg which she started in 1998.
Ongoing Centre Renovation
Work continues with joyful effort and things at the Buddhist centre are gradually moving forward. The new wooden floor has been laid in the social area and the walls have been plastered. The focus has now moved to the garden, taking advantage of the nice weather :-) Work is undertaken in stages so as to minimise disruption to the public meditation programme or other events. We are compiling an online "before and after" photo series which we will have a link to in the next newsletter.
Directions - The centre is on New North Road approximately 100 metres from the clock tower when travelling towards the Exeter College from the town centre direction. We are the last house on the left hand side immediately before the traffic lights. It's the yellow house with a brown front door.

Welcome to the Exeter Diamond Way Buddhist website
Hello, and a warm welcome to you from the Diamond Way Buddhist centre here in Exeter, Devon. The centre was opened in 2004 and is one of over 655 international Diamond Way Buddhist centres and groups around the world. Our centres were founded by Lama Ole Nydahl according to the wishes of H.H. the 16th Karmapa Rangjung Rigpe Dorje. We follow the spiritual guidance of H.H. the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa, Trinley Thaye Dorje. and are part of the Karma Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism which is a noble tradition that can be traced back to the historical Buddha Shakyamuni.
Meditation is a major cornerstone to the Diamond Way Buddhist practice. Our meditation brings a calmness and new awareness of oneself although this is when our practice of working with mind is just beginning. Through our meditation we work on developing additional qualities such as wisdom and compassion for all sentient beings. It is this which gives us a true inner happiness and with regular meditation these positive personal developments become part of our everyday lives.
If you are interested in learning more about Buddhist philosophy and its meditation practices then please have a look at our meditation centre page to find out about our meditation times & introductory evenings or see what public events are coming up in and around the Exeter area.
