The Brno Centre is one of fifty meditation centres of the Diamond Way Buddhism in the Czech Republic, where people can learn about practical use of Buddhism and meditations in modern Western society.
The Centre was established by Lama Ole Nydahl, one of the first Europeans authorised to teach Buddhism in the West, and works under the spiritual guidance of H.H. 17th Karmapa Trinle Thaye within the Tibetan School of Karma Kagyu.
How to start to meditate?
For our English-speaking friends, meditation sessions will be held in English every Thursday.
Newcomers are advised to come to an introductory lecture on Buddhism, held every other Monday from 8 p.m. (see programme). The lecture takes about 1.5 hour, entrance fee is CZK 60. It also includes Q&A and a 15-minute meditation which is suitable for beginners as well. If Monday lectures are not a suitable time for you, you may consider coming for one of the public meditations.
We also offer Buddhist literature.
