Diamond Way Buddhism Australia

It is now an ACT Government requirement that everyone wears a mask while in the Buddhist Centre, except children under 12 years of age.

If you really want to fast track the development of your mind, we meet together on the third weekend of each month to practice the foundational practices of Tibetan Buddhism, also known as the Ngondro.

Everyone who wants to learn more about the Ngondro or who has already begun their Ngondro is welcome to join us. If you haven’t yet started the Ngondro, our regular meditation nights are perfectly suited to newcomers! Please see our regular events schedule.

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.
