MEDITATION | Campus lecture by Jeremiah Hendren

Where: Memorial Union

800 Langdon St, Madison, WI 53706

When: Tuesday March 10
Time: 7:30 pm


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."


This lecture is free and starts at 7:30 pm in Memorial Union at the UW campus. The Today in the Union screens ("DWB Meditation" listing) will tell you the specific room location.

All of our lectures include an introduction into Buddhism and the Diamond Way approach (also known as Vajrayana or Tibetan Buddhism). Campus lectures last about an hour and are followed by a short, guided experience of our meditation practice.

This lecture will be given by Jeremiah Hendren, a Diamond Way Buddhist and traveling teacher.


Jeremiah Hendren took refuge with Lama Ole as a child in California during the 1990s. During university, he helped start the Diamond Way Buddhist Center in Boston. He and his wife Yomi moved to Germany in 2011 with the wish to help connect the Diamond Way activity on both sides of the Atlantic. He was asked by Lama Ole to teach in 2015.


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.
