This lecture will be given by Tal Guri who is joining us all the way from Israel as part of her teaching tour throughout the Diamond Way centers in the US and Canada.

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 Daily Life.

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:

"Meditation is the central pillar of Buddha's teachings. It takes what is learned and understood intellectually in one's head and moves it to the heart, making it a part of one's life. Allowing for distance to one's daily mind flow, the recognition of the impermanence of any obstacle permits spontaneous insights to arise, along with blissful and enlightening states of deep understanding. When one's awareness of the emptiness of any lasting personal nature and the mutually conditioned character of all outer and inner appearances becomes stable, the rest is a pure gift."


Tal became a student of Lama Ole Nydahl in 1999 during his first visit to Israel. In 2010, Lama Ole asked her to teach in Diamond Way Buddhist Centers. Tal currently works as an aerobic instructor and a personal trainer.


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.
