Our London Buddhist Centre is open!

After a year and a half of renovation, we are pleased to announce that our London Buddhist Centre is now open! With so much happening in the centre, we almost forgot to write and let our loyal blog subscribers know that, finally, we are open for public meditation!

All Diamond Way Buddhist centres offer regular public meditations, free of charge. To offer the Buddha’s highest meditation methods was the motivation for buying the building and investing so much time in the project, and it’s the Buddhist Centre’s very raison d’etre. Although much of the Beaufoy building is still being worked on, we have finished the meditation halls and the public lounge to a standard where we can invite everyone in.

The centre was officially opened as part of the visit of Lama Ole Nydahl and Lama Jigme Rinpoche. On our UK Buddhist blog you can read more about the official opening and the events surrounding it, including an initiation by Lama Jigme Rinpoche, teachings by Lama Ole Nydahl, speeches by special guests, and much more, in the article “The London Diamond Way Buddhist Centre opens its doors to the public at the Beaufoy Institute, Lambeth“.

Since then, many people have already joined our public classes and tried the meditation on the 16th Karmapa for themselves. The guided Buddhist meditations are suitable for beginners, and happen every Thursday at 7pm. If you use the popular social networking service FourSquare, check in to the Beaufoy Institute; or you can follow us on Facebook, and tell your friends!
