Buddhism in Groningen

Meditation in Groningen

De meditatieruimte in Groningen

The goal of Buddhism is a state of lasting, unconditional happiness known as enlightenment.

To bring us to this state, Buddhism points us to lasting values in this impermanent world, and gives us valuable information about how things really are. Through understanding the law of cause and effect, using practical tools like meditation to gain insight and develop compassion and wisdom, we — all of us — can tap into our potential to realize the ultimate goal of enlightenment.

The center in Groningen exists since 1979. It started as a collaboration between Buddhists of different traditions. Later each tradition established its own organization. Since 1990 the group consists of Diamond Way practitioners. In the years that followed, more groups emerged in the Netherlands.

The center regularly organizes theme days and theme weekends. On those days there is the opportunity to meditate longer, or there are lectures by teachers on Buddhist topics.
