Ongoing Centre Renovation
Work continues with joyful effort and things at the Buddhist centre are gradually moving forward. The next big job is the fitting of the wooden floor in the social area once the floor has been levelled. Work is undertaken in steps so as usual nothing will affect the public meditation evenings or any 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 going back over 2500 years.
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.
