Diamond Way Family Meeting

As is tradition right before the Summer Course, around 60 friends from Great Britain, the Czech Republic, Norway, Denmark, Germany, Poland, Hungary, Switzerland, Israel, Colombia, Ukraine, USA, Australia, Austria, Russia, New Zealand, Spain, Venezuela and Serbia came together for two full days of intense exchange.

The Diamond Way Family meeting has been taking place for several years already, with many frequent participants as well as some fresh faces joining in. In a wonderful, really family-like atmosphere, the main point of discussion was one which has been dealt with in pretty much every center around the world over the past year: the right balance of democracy and meritocracy in the organization of our Diamond Way Buddhist Centers. Listening to the experiences made in other parts of the world, finding similarities or new ideas… all this made it a very fruitful get together which is to be continued next year!
