Meditation: A Practical Tool for Happiness | Public Lecture with Sarah Primus
|When:||Tuesday January 9|
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
Join us for a lecture with Sarah Primus Diamond Way Buddhist teacher from Australia.
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.
Meditation: A Practical Tool for Happiness will introduce you into the essential techniques used by most Buddhist schools as well as the treasured methods specific to the Diamond Way. Learn the components of meditation, like calm abiding and insight techniques, that support the advanced method of direct identification with enlightenment.

Sarah met Lama Ole in Australia in 1996 when she was 17 years old. She spent several months at Lopon Tsechu Rinpoche’s monastery in Nepal and then seven years traveling to different Diamond Way centers and teaching English in Europe. After living at Karma Guen, Spain for five years, she is now based in Perth, has a ten year old son and continues her involvement with both local and international Diamond Way projects. She lives in the newly founded Perth Center.
Lama Ole asked her to start teaching in 2012 and she has since taught in Australia, Sweden, Germany, Austria, Poland, Greece, Czech Republic, New Zealand, Slovakia, Bulgaria, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Hungary and Lithuania.
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!
