This meditation is offered by Diamond Way Buddhist Center San Francisco which belongs to an international non-profit network of over 600 lay Diamond Way Buddhist centers of the Karma Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism, founded by Lama Ole Nydahl and under the spiritual guidance of H.H. the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa, Trinley Thaye Dorje.
Diamond Way Buddhism offers the most skillful methods of the Buddha to the modern world. Using them one learns to experience the world from a rich and self-liberating viewpoint. Diamond Way meditations develop a deep inner richness and lead to a non-artificial and unwavering mind where every enlightened activity can unfold. They work with people’s confidence and desire, using every situation in life to develop fearlessness and joy.
The program on Mondays begins with a short introduction to newcomers followed by a guided meditation “Guru Yoga on the 16th Karmapa.”
Guru Yoga meditation, as practiced in the Karma Kagyu centers around the world, is the most direct way to recognize the true nature of one's mind. Also called "the way of identification" - this is the essence of the Kagyu transmission where students realize their full potential in the stream of their teacher's blessing. Since a total identification on the level of perfection presses countless "enlightenment buttons" in one's subconscious, it is a very fast way to realize one's Buddha nature.
