16 FEBRUARY, FRIDAY
We welcome Phil to Albury. He met Lama Ole Nydahl in 1995 and was inspired by his practical western approach to Tibetan Karma Kagyu Buddhism. Phil was one of several students who together established the Sydney Diamond Way Buddhist Centre in 1996.
In 2007, Lama Ole asked Phil to begin teaching to help spread the timeless and profound methods of the Diamond Way to idealistic westerners, and has since taught throughout Europe, Russia and the Americas.
Phil is married with an eight year old daughter, and is ‘in the process of retiring’ after running a small business for the last 25 years.
He will explain how using the profound meditation methods to enrich our experience of everyday life can enable us to lead meaningful, joyful lives of benefit to others.
If you are interested in Buddhism and have questions, you can come along and learn how to apply these useful teachings in everyday life.
Venue: The Space, Level 1, 490 David Street
Suggested donation $10 (To cover travel cost and room hire)

Turn up roughly on time, and expect to meet a relaxed and friendly bunch of people who seem remarkably normal and un-holy. Diamond Way Buddhism is for regular people after all, and no formal meditation experience or Buddhist knowledge is required.
Each centre has its own timetable. A list of centres is shown at the top of this page. Please see the individual webpage of your local centre for their activities schedule.
There is usually a talk before the free guided meditation begins, given by members of the group keen to practice sharing their knowledge. The guided meditation runs for about 20 to 30 minutes. The presenter for the evening will outline the details of the meditation prior to commencing. Please check the centres schedule for their weekly program, the public evenings are free to attend.
No, newcomers are welcome to all of our meditations. The meditation is guided in English and the host of the meditation session can answer your questions.
You don’t need to bring anything along. Mats, cushions and chairs are all provided.
During the meditation, it is recommended to have a straight back and to be comfortable. You can meditate while seated on a cushion or a chair; after all, it’s your mind that gets enlightened, not your knees!!
There is no fee. If you attend regularly you’ll hear about how you can support the centre or become a financial member, but it is optional. Donations are always welcome to help cover regular centre costs.
Each centre has a bookshop containing Diamond Way Buddhist meditation booklets, books, DVDs and other Buddhist paraphernalia.
Centres are financed mainly through optional membership contributions. All surplus monies from courses and public lectures are used to fund Diamond Way Buddhist projects in Australia and around the world.
Just make an enquiry at your local Diamond Way Buddhist Centre.
