Since the first visit of the 16th Karmapa Rangjung Rigpe Dorje to the West in 1974, Lama Ole Nydahl and his wife Hannah Nydahl have developed over 500 Buddhist Centres in 46 countries. These groups have a democratic structure, and they function voluntarily, on a basis of idealism and friendship. The friends are sharing the responsibility in guiding meditations, asking questions and passing the teachings. Till now, lama Ole has qualified many students that are traveling and give teachings in many countries.
The Karma Kagyu school offers practical teachings which suites for daily life. It gives various methods to yogis and lay people for developing mind’s natural richness and clarity through meditation and daily activity. Three “pillars” support the “roof” of the self-liberating Mahamudra: Non-believe teachings, which can be verified; meditation; and means for establishing the levels of consciousness that have been reached.
The Diamond Way opens Buddha’s most skilful methods to the modern world. It helps us to discover our inner richness and to develop it for the benefit of all beings as for ourselves.
