The Nizhny Novgorod Buddhist Center

 Our center was founded in 1992. It functions under the spiritual guidance of Lama Ole Nydahl. The head of the Karma Kagyu tradition of Tibetan Buddhism is His Holiness the Gyalwa Karmapa.

The Diamond Way Meditation Center is not a monastic organization. It is intended for lay people who have an education, a job, a family and their own political views, they are active in society, serve in the army, enjoy the achievements of science and medicine. In total, there are about 100 Karma Kagyu meditation centers and groups in Russia.

The center is open to people seeking to gain knowledge of the nature of the mind through the experience of meditation. Our center is not engaged in missionary work - the Teaching is transmitted only to those who show interest in it. In the Buddhist center, one can practice the methods given by the Buddha, which help to discover and reveal inner wealth for the benefit of all sentient beings.
