About center

The Buddhist Center of Nizhny Novgorod belongs to Karma Kagyu tradition. It was founded by Lama Ole Nydahl and is under the spiritual guidance of His Holiness the 17-th Karmapa Trinley Thaye Dorje.

In our center one can learn the Diamond Way Buddhism in the modern and non-monastic way, taste the meditation and experience the full power and deep meaning of Buddha’s teachings in our everyday life.

The Buddhist Center has already been functioning for around 20 years.  We regularly invite travelling teachers from all over the world (the schedule can be found on this website).

Welcome! We are always open to give you more freedom and joy!
