Buddhist meditation centre in Jelenia Góra is one of 640 Diamond Way centres in the world.
In late 60s of 20th century Hannah and her husband Ole met 16th Karmapa Rangjung Rigpe Dorje during their trip to India and Nepal. He was the greatest master of meditation of his times and they became his students. After a few years, Karmapa asked them to spread Diamond Way teachings around the world and to found centres. First appeared centres in Europe, Americas, Russia than in Australia, New Zeeland, South Africa, Japan, Hong-Kong, Nepal and Israel. Since then they founded 640 lay centres including a several dozens in Poland.
Diamond Way Centres are places where lay practitioners are gathering for common meditations, individual practice, joining lectures and meditation courses. Lectures, as well as meditation courses, are guided in mother languages and in the style which is suitable for our culture. They are for the beginners as well as more experienced people. The centres are maintained by all practitioners on the voluntary basis. The centre runs fully thanks to membership donations and donations from lectures, meditation courses and other events.
The basis for buddhist practice lays in the three pillars: knowledge, meditation and action. While taking part in lectures, reading book we get to know Buddhist teachings, but thanks to meditation we can transform the view from the teachings into our practical experience. The experience we can use in our daily life, maintaining the highest view and using every situation for our development. More informations about Diamond Way Buddhism you can find on www.buddyzm.pl
