Buddhist Center Brno
The Brno Centre is the second biggest of more than 50 meditation centres of the Diamond Way Buddhism in the Czech Republic established by Lama Ole Nydahl and working under the spiritual guidance of Thaye Dorje, His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa. A stable meditation group appeared in Brno in September 1998. Since 1999, the Centre had functioned in a former kindergarten. In 2003, it was purchased and became a property of the Nydahl Endowment Fund, which is in charge of the Czech DWB assets.
With the growing interest in Buddhism and meditation, the centre capacity ceased to be sufficient, thus in 2009-2010, a new centre was built at the place of the former kindergarden. In January 2011, the centre moved to the new premises in Trtílkova Street No. 18.
We organize lectures by both Czech and foreign teachers, exhibitions and other activities. Public meditations are held three times a week and meditation weekends are usually organized once a month.
