Buddhist Center Lisbon
The Lisbon Diamond Way Buddhist Center was founded in 2004 in Sintra and has been in Lisbon since 2011. In July 2012 we got a new meditation space in a centrally located area, up hill from the downtown and easily accessible by tram, bus or taxi - see contacts.
We follow the Karma Kagyu tradition of Tibetan Buddhism and are one of 650 centres worldwide, founded by Lama Ole Nydahl. More about Diamond Way Buddhism here.
"Buddhism is how we live. It's not a faith system. It's a religion of experience. (...) If we live in a way that benefits everybody - that gives human growth on all levels -, then this is a Buddhist life, it is an example of how Buddhism can be used. By giving you get rich. It's always like that. You cannot do anything better for yourself than giving freedom and happiness to others. There's no way to bring more good." Lama Ole Nydahl
