Diamond Way Buddhist Group of Greater Cincinnati offers open public meditation every Teusday night at 8:00pm, our new time. A brief talk on a Buddhist subject will be given at 8:00 followed by a guided meditation at 8:15. Meditation is free and open to the public. Please join us each week.
Diamond Way Buddhist Group Greater Cincinnati is part of an international network of over 500 meditation centers in the Karma Kagyu tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. The centers were founded and are directed by Lama Ole Nydahl according to the wishes of H.H. 16th Karmapa. They are now under the spiritual guidance of H.H. 17th Gyalwa Karmapa, Trinley Thaye Dorje.
The main practice in all our centers is the Guru Yoga meditation, guided in English and lasting around 30 minutes. There is a relaxed social atmosphere in the centers, refreshments are provided, and questions are encouraged. Our weekly meditation evenings are open to the public and are free of charge.
In Diamond Way or Vajrayana Buddhism the view is that all phenomena are inherently pure, and that enlightenment is our natural state. Through identification with one's own Buddha nature, both in meditation and in everyday life, realization unfolds effortlessly. Mind's potential expresses itself fully when there is no longer a separation between the perceiver, that which is perceived, and the perception itself.
