Karma Guen

In the Andalusian Mountains overlooking the Mediterranean Sea to the south and the Zafarraya “Lions Gate” to the north, you will find the Diamond Way Buddhist Retreat Center Karma Guen. The astonishing mountains and landscape sets the perfect surroundings for the village originally named Aldea Alta.

For several centuries the village was home for more than a dozen families and a respected place hosting the school of the area. Being abandoned in the 1970´s Aldea Alta was bought by Dorrit and Pedro Gomez and turned into Karma Guen.

Buddhist Center Karma Guen

The Buddhist Center Karma Guen is one of 600 Diamond Way Buddhist centers of the Karma Kagyu lineage. They were established by Lama Ole and Hannah Nydahl according to the wishes of H.H. 16th Karmapa. The centers are under the patronage of H.H. 17th Karmapa Thaye Dorje.

Our centers are friendly places where people get easy access to Buddha’s timeless wisdom, meditate together, share experiences and actively participate in the center activities. They are non-monastic and western in style, yet rooted in the lineage of oral transmission going back to the historical Buddha 2500 years ago.

We invite you to take a look at our regular program and come for one of our public meditation evenings without obligation if you are interested.
