German-Speaking Diamond Way Centers Meet in Braunschweig

On the last weekend of October, Braunschweig is the place to be for everyone who actively supports our Buddhist centers in German-speaking countries.

This year over 500 representatives from Germany, Austria and Switzerland came to together to coordinate common activities and to exchange the latest organisational news. Friends from many centers around the world joined us via streaming to participate remotely.

Lama Ole also joined us via Skype on Sunday to guide a meditation on the 16th Karmapa. Due to his ongoing retreat, this was our first annual meeting without him on-site.

We always enjoy this weekend very much, because we run our centers together in our free time and the annual meeting gives us the chance to share our experiences, to deepen our connections and to learn from each other on a frequent basis.

Comparing the experiences of large, small, new and old centers enriches and broadens our perspective and helps to understand how best to create and maintain places where anyone can learn to meditate and hear lectures about Buddhism in a friendly and open atmosphere.
