When: Tuesday April 16
Time: 7:30 PM

"As is generally known, Buddhism has a very practical aim and its view is exceedingly clear. No one gets enlightened from only hearing teachings. Lasting results come from real experiences and the changes they bring about."

- Lama Ole Nydahl

Behind the profound methods and view of the Diamond Way level of Buddha's teachings is the deep wish to bring all beings to enlightenment. This wish comes alive when we make use of the six liberating actions (or six paramitas), which include generosity, meaningful behavior, patience, meditation, joyful effort and wisdom.

This lecture will be given by Juan Franco, a traveling teacher that lives and works as director of an organic food company in Bogotá, Colombia.


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.
