Lama Ole Nydahl is a contemporary Buddhist teacher who at seventy-years-old enjoys skydiving, fast motorcycles and bungee jumping.
He travels the world teaching countless people how to apply the practical, timeless wisdom of Tibetan Buddhism to their modern lives. Lama Ole has set up over 600 Diamond Way Buddhist Centres around the world. He attributes their success to the values of friendship, idealism and trust.
“The purpose of the Diamond Way Buddhist meditation centres is to teach meditation that allows oneself to experience mind itself and open up to its full potential”, says Lama Ole.
“Buddha taught on different levels to different people and the highest of these teachings is called Mahamudra, where one arrives at a place of unlimited joy, compassion and fearlessness.”
“Today people want direct experience, not advice on behaviour or what to avoid. As Diamond Way Buddhists we have methods which give this experience and it is due to this that we now have over 600 centres worldwide”.
“When I was at university prior to becoming a Buddhist some 50 years ago I was very interested in mind but it wasn’t until I met some very accomplished Buddhist Masters that I found the living example of my theories concerning it”.
Lama Ole has accomplished something which has never been done before in establishing a Western style of Buddhism that brings people to maturity and gives them something which they can rely upon.
Lama Ole explains “Buddhism can’t add one ounce of truth to our minds, all it does is point it out so we can realize it for ourselves”
“Buddhism starts with taking self-responsibility and finishes with sharing the inherent richness you have found with others so they too can carry on the teachings. This is what my teachers gave to me and why I travel the world;  it’s simply too precious not to share.”
As the first leg of the National Australian Tour, the Perth Diamond Way Buddhist Centre will be hosting a lecture with Lama Ole Nydahl titled, “Modern Buddhism : Practical Timeless Wisdom” on Tuesday 6th March 2012 at the State Library of Western Australia Theatre.  Admission price $15/ $12 concession.
