Being a Buddha - The Four Enlightened Activities | A public Lecture with an international Diamond Way teacher

Where: Madison
104 King St. Suite 302, Madison, WI 53703
When: Wednesday December 6

"The meaning of all Buddha's teachings and the goal of every Buddhist meditation is only to dissolve one's entrapment in this illusion."

- Lama Ole Nydahl, The Way Things Are


For more than a millennium the Karma Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism has transmitted some of the most powerful meditation methods Buddhism has to offer. Today, these transformative approaches are available in Diamond Way Buddhist centers throughout the Western world.

Please join us for a lecture with Andrea Boy of Hamburg. Andrea has been a student of Lama Ole Nydahl for decades and has completed two three-year meditation retreats ('94 - '97 and '05 - '08).

All buddhas, continuously and effortlessly, employ their body, speech, mind, qualities, and activities to help others. This produces the greatest advantage for the highest number of beings, into the most distant future. Known as peace giving, enriching, fascinating, and powerfully protecting, the four buddha activities place the finest of tools in one's hands to transform every aspect of life and turn every experience into a step to enlightenment. After the lecture there will be an opportunity to ask questions, and we will try a short meditation.


Individuals normally donate $10 per lecture. We accept cash or donations through our Paypal page.

Our events have a warm, family feeling and questions are highly encouraged. Lectures usually have up to two hours of information and are concluded with our main meditation practice. No previous experience with Buddhism or meditation is required to attend any of our programs!
