While changing, impermanent phenomena can only bring temporary happiness and suffering, the nature of mind itself is timeless and as such is a lasting refuge. Its realisation through profound methods and support on the way brings forth the inherent fearlessness, joy and compassion of our true nature. This talk addresses the meaning of these central values of Buddhism.

The London Diamond Way Buddhist centre is pleased to invite you to a public lecture. The topic will be “Student-Teacher Relationship in Diamond Way Buddhism” and the talk will be given by a lay Buddhist teacher from London.

This lecture will offer an introduction to the meaning of student-teacher relationship in Diamond Way Buddhism. Here, a teacher not only needs to know the teachings and be a good example of compassion, they also need to know the nature of mind. Sharing their experience of this and insight into life, they are able to support their students’ development.

This is our second Open Day of the year, following the huge success of our previous Open Days which have been attended by hundreds of our neighbours and members of the local community. Come and see the progress made by the volunteers of the Diamond Way Buddhist centre in revitalising the beautiful Beaufoy Institute, which had been derelict and inaccessible for so many years.

On Sunday 14th August 2016, the London Diamond Way Buddhist center is pleased to invite you to a public lecture. The topic will be “Buddhist Meditation” and the talk will be given by a lay Buddhist teacher from London.

Meditation is a method to gain distance to impermanent phenomena such as feelings and thoughts. Buddhism teaches about permanent values inherent in mind, such as fearlessness, joy and compassion. Meditation allows us to not only intellectually understand these qualities, but also to experience them. Observing everything coming and going in our mind gives us the space to finally recognize the observer of everything — the true nature of mind. This talk addresses the main methods of meditation within Diamond Way Buddhism.
