OUR EXETER CENTRE HAS MOVED !!!
We have now moved to our new Buddhist Centre;
Bury Meadow Cottage,
New North Road,
Exeter, EX4 4HH
After 10 very happy years in Toronto Road we had our last meditation in the old centre Thursday 4th December and thanks to the hard work of many friends we have our first meditation in the new centre tonight 8th December. The new Centre is very close to the town centre and is within easy walking distance of Exeter Central & Exeter St. Davids train stations with plenty of nearby free parking during the evening.
The meditation room has been transformed into a wonderful warm and welcoming environment and whilst the house is still "work in progress" we are open for all of our usual Buddhist activities. The centre situated approximately 100 metres from the Clock Tower going towards Exeter college; and is on the left hand side immediately before the traffic lights. Google are currently updating the maps as their location pointer is a little wayward. ☺

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 going back over 2500 years.
Meditation is a major corner stone 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.
