On Sunday 18th February 2018, the London Diamond Way Buddhist centre is pleased to invite you to a public lecture. The topic will be “Buddhist Meditation” and the talk will be given by Gabi Wohlfahrtstätter-Volenko, lay Buddhist teacher from Germany.

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.

On Sunday 21st May 2017, the London Diamond Way Buddhist centre is pleased to invite you to a public lecture. The topic will be “Buddhism in daily life” and the talk will be given by Roman Lauš, a lay Buddhist teacher from the Czech Republic.

In Diamond Way teachings one uses the force of strong emotions as fuel for development. Buddha teaches how the same energy that creates our disturbing feelings actually is the basis for the great richness of wisdom that mind can express. This lecture will introduce a Buddhist view on emotions and the methods that are used to work with them in a meaningful way that aims for human development.

Roman Lauš took refuge with Lama Ole Nydahl in 1998 in Brno, Czech Republic. He is the part-owner of a desktop publishing company. Roman has been teaching Diamond Way Buddhism since 2003 and has served as Editor-in-Chief of the Czech “Buddhism Today” magazine for the past ten years. In 2000, Roman and a few friends from the Brno Center founded the publishing house “White Umbrella.”
