We welcome you all warmly to Copenhagen April 28-30! Teachings by Lama Ole Nydahl on The Great Seal (Mahamudra), lectures by Diamond Way teachers, pictures and films honoring Hannah Nydahl, tours in the Buddhist Center and to the Diamond Way historical places in Copenhagen.
Diamond Way Buddhism offers methods, which lead to happiness and freedom. The teachings date back to the time of the historical Buddha. Lama Ole and Hannah Nydahl became the first Western students of the 16th Karmapa – the spiritual leader of the Karma Kagyu lineage. Since the 1970s they have started almost 700 Diamond Way centres around the world, 12 of them in Denmark.
To practise Diamond Way Buddhism one needs a teacher, who is not seen as a person but as a mirror to one’s own potential. Since the time of the Buddha, the teachings have been passed on through oral transmission. Lama Ole Nydahl received the transmission from the 16th Karmapa, and together with the 17th Karmapa Thaye Dorje, he continues the work of spreading Buddhism in the West.
