ABOUT THE SPEAKER:
Lama Ole Nydahl is one of the few fully empowered Western Buddhist lamas in the Karma Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism..

Since being asked in 1972 by the leader of that highly regarded lineage the 16th Gyalwa Karmapa Rigpe Dorje, to offer Buddhism to those who were interested in the West, he has been doing so constantly in spiritually free countries all around the world.

Lama Ole specializes in teaching Mahamudra, the “Great Seal”, in which a realized teacher can give an experience of the limitless nature of mind to the student.

He is the author of several books including The Way Things Are; Entering the Diamond Way; Mahamudra; Riding the Tiger; Great Seal, Buddha & Love and Fearless Death.

ABOUT DIAMOND WAY BUDDHISM:

Diamond Way Buddhism belongs to the thousand-year-old Karma Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism. Lama Ole Nydahl, a Western Buddhist master born in Denmark, established Diamond Way Buddhism in the 1970’s, together with his wife Hannah Nydahl. Their main teacher the 16th Karmapa asked them to teach what they had learned and to start Buddhist centers in the West.

More than 40 years later, there are now 679 Diamond Way Buddhist centers around the world. The meditation methods that you can learn in these centers are all traditional Buddhist teachings, but presented in a modern, Western setting and language, accessible to all.

The name “Diamond Way” is a translation of the Sanskrit word Vajrayana. Vajrayana is considered to be the most direct of the three levels of Buddha’s teachings. It is part of all the “old schools” of Tibetan Buddhism, and can also be found in other parts of the world.
