Bratislava Diamond Way Buddhist Center

Bratislava's center was founded in 1998. Nowadays it has about 150 members. It's the largest one out of the 13 centers and groups of Diamond Way Buddhism in Slovakia. On the center’s busiest weekday up to 50 people come for meditation. We have daily common meditations at the center and we also organize regular lectures with there with Diamond Way teachers.
Thaye Dorje, His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa, visited Bratislava in 2005, where he stayed for two days and gave a Loving Eyes empowerment to 2,000 people.
Lama Ole Nydahl has regularly visited Bratislava since his first visit in 1996. We have also hosted Hannah Nydahl and Sherab Gyaltsen Rinpoche several times.
In February 2015 we organized a Tibetan art exhibition under the name Space and Joy along with the Slovak National Museum.
In 2015 we bought a big building for new Bratislava's Buddhist center. We are now reconstructing it so that we could use the new place soon.
