When: Wednesday April 11
Time: 8 pm

“Highest truth is highest function. The more there is love and joy, insight and power; the closer we are to truth.”

- Lama Ole Nydahl

Join us for a lecture with Pit and Maike Weigelt Diamond Way Buddhist teachers from Germany.


Even if the teacher is far away traveling, the student can rest in the transmission of the teacher and can always gain new power and insight. With each transmission and inspiration, the level of experience is raised and the trust into the mind is strengthened. The richness of mind is the goal and, at the same time, the way.


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!


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


In 1992, Maike and Pit Weigelt both took Buddhist refuge. In 1997, Lama Ole Nydahl asked them to travel around the world as Diamond Way teachers. Since then, their lecture tours have taken them across Europe, Russia, North and South America. Being former school teachers, they have been providing Buddhist teaching materials as well as offering advanced training in Buddhism for teachers in Germany. They edit and translate books for Lama Ole and for the magazine,
“­Buddhism Today.” In 2009, they moved from Northern Germany to Immenstadt to support the Europe Center, the big international Buddhist center, in Southern Germany. Maike and Pit are parents of three adult children and have three grandchildren.


The Diamond Way Buddhist Center of Madison belongs to an international, non-profit network of nearly 700 lay groups and centers of the Karma Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism. The Diamond Way centers have been founded by Lama Ole and Hannah Nydahl and are under the spiritual guidance of H.H. the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa, Trinley Thaye Dorje.
