Teacher and Student Relationship

When: Tuesday June 11
Time: 8 pm

This lecture will be given by our dear friend Amadeo Rosenheim of CancĂșn, Mexico as part of his week-long teaching tour of the Diamond Way centers in the Midwest.

All of our lectures include an introduction into Buddhism and the Diamond Way approach, but if you are looking for a more extensive foundation of information then please join us the evening before for Buddhism in the Modern World.

Our lectures usually last up to two hours and include a short, guided experience of our main meditation practice. There will be chances to ask questions throughout the evening!

There is a suggested donation of $10 for this lecture.


From Lama Ole Nydahl's book, The Way Things Are:

"The lama's only task is to develop his student's independence, compassion, and strength. He will celebrate their special qualities and be thankful that there is so much good to be shared. Above all, a spiritual teacher will insist that nobody's time is wasted. Not thinking of himself to be better than his students or expecting special treatments or luxuries, he will surround himself with people he can work with and learn from and avoid creating a court of groupies to serve or provide praise. Following the reasonable laws of free countries and not creating embarrassments, all activities shared with students will be for their inner growth."


Amadeo first met Lama Ole Nydahl in 2005 in London. In 2008 he moved to CancĂșn where he has lived since, and has helped establish Buddhist centers throughout the southeast region of the country. Amadeo is originally from Madrid, Spain which is where he studied theatre. He currently owns his own photography business.


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.
