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, 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.
