How the Buddhist Centers Berlin are Organized

The first center in Berlin was founded by Lama Ole Nydahl in 1987 in the former west Berlin. Since 2003 we are located in the tower of the old Groterjan brewery in Milastrasse in Prenzlauer Berg close to the famous Mauerpark and in the Akazienkiez in Schöneberg.

The Buddhist centers are organized as an association (“Verein”) and run by their 350 members exclusively on a voluntary basis. They are  part of the approximately 150 Diamond Way Buddhist centers in Germany and 700 centers worldwide, founded by Lama Ole Nydahl under the spiritual guidance of Thaye Dorje, His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa.
