The Buddhist Centers in Greece are part of 650 Diamond Way Buddhist centers of the Karma Kagyu lineage. They were established by Lama Ole and Hannah Nydahl according to the wishes of H.H. 16th Karmapa. The centers are under the patronage of H.H. 17th Karmapa Thaye Dorje.

Our centers are friendly places where people get easy access to Buddha’s timeless wisdom, meditate together, share experiences and actively participate in the center activities. They are non-monastic and western in style, yet rooted in the lineage of oral transmission going back to the historical Buddha 2500 years ago.

We invite you to take a look at our regular program and come for one of our public meditation evenings without obligation if you are interested.

In Greece, three Dianmondway Buddhism centers and groups exist: Athens, Thessaloniki and the retreat place Karma Berchen Ling.
