Lama Ole Nydahl
Lama Ole Nydahl and his wife Hannah were the first western students of the H.H. 16th Gyalwa Karmapa. In a constant exchange with his students, Lama Ole teaches the goal and methods of Karma Kagyu Diamond Way Buddhism. His joyful way of living provides a glimpse of what anyone can achieve through direct experience of one’s own mind.
He has transmitted the blessing of the lineage, traveling as an authorized Lama and tirelessly teaching around the world in a different city nearly every day for over 30 years. The depth of his knowledge and dynamic way of teaching inspire thousands of people at his lectures and retreats around the world. He has been a driving force in bringing Buddhism to the West.
