Campus Lecture | BUDDHIST MEDITATION: A Practical Tool for Happiness

Where: Union South

1308 W Dayton St Madison WI 53715

When: Tuesday November 6
Time: 7:30 pm

"We just have to remind ourselves that the source for any happiness is the mind itself."

- Lama Ole Nydahl


In Diamond Way Buddhism, we start with the notion that the only difference between us and the Buddha is that he meditated more. We identify with contemporary examples of enlightenment, who introduce us to our own enlightened potential. Meditation helps us create a foundation of fearlessness and activate the timeless happiness that's inherently in our mind, and in turn we use those qualities to help those around us.

This lecture will be given by Joan Paul Pozuelos Lopez, a Diamond Way traveling teacher.


Upon arrival check the Today in the Union (T.I.T.U.) tv screens for the "DWB: Buddhist Meditation" listing to find the room location.


Joan Paul met Lama Ole in Guatemala and took refuge in April 2000. In college he majored in psychology and went on to do a PhD at the University of Granada in Spain in 2014. As a scientist, his work has focused on studying the behavioral and brain changes related to different types of mental training including meditation.


The Diamond Way Buddhist Center of Madison and the University of Wisconsin-Madison chapter of Diamond Way Buddhism belong 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.
