"The more one understands that mind itself is indestructible, the more likely it is that expectations and fears will dissolve and one can rest freely in the moment or act."

- Lama Ole Nydahl, Fearless Death: Buddhist Wisdom on the Art of Dying


Tibetan Buddhism offers fascinating teachings in regards to the process of dying and the moment of death. We understand that what has come together will fall apart, and what is born will die, but that every moment from now can be used to build deep confidence and fearlessness in our own mind.

The lecture will be given by John Christopherson, a Diamond Way Buddhist traveling teacher from Madison.


This lecture is free and open to both UW students and the public. Upon arrival check the Today in the Union screens for the "DWB Meditation" listing to find the exact room location.


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.
