Please join us for a very special week of teachings and meditations at the Perth Diamond Way Buddhist centre!
The 365 Tour is the continuation of Lama Ole and Hannah’s world teaching tours around the world. For 40 years, they traveled tirelessly around the world meeting students, giving teachings, setting up centres and connecting with people, which resulted in about 650 Diamond Way centres & groups set up around the world.
It is in our Vajrayana tradition to travel to get precious teachings, and meet with friends and sangha around the world! Whilst Lama Ole is no longer traveling as he did before, we are continuing with this tradition. In February and March 2023, the 365 Tour is coming to New Zealand and Australia!
The theme of this tour is the History of Diamond Way in Australia. In Perth, we will have panel teachings, meditation and spend time together.
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.
