There are five Diamond Way Buddhism centers in Israel. These centers are a part of a network of more than 650 meditation centers belonging to the Karma Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism. All of them were founded by lama Ole Nydahl under the spiritual guidance of HH 17th Karmapa Trinley Thaye Dorje. The centers function as non-profit organizations and operate based on friendship and idealism whereas the authentic teachings and the methods of the Buddha are transmitted there in an apprehensible and modern way allowing western people to incorporate them in their daily lives.
