Buddhist Lecture Series – Meditation

This lecture covers information on what Buddhist meditation is, the meditation instruction, and how to practically apply it in daily life.
The ultimate aim of Buddhist meditation is to become aware of the nature of mind. When one can hold this awareness permanently, resting naturally in the mind’s true nature, this is called enlightenment. In the lecture, Mark will explain what Buddhist meditation is, what Buddhist meditation instructions are, and how using meditation methods can enrich our lives so we can lead meaningful and joyful lives to benefit others.
Cost: $15 cash welcome or credit card payment via Eventbrite

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.
