Where: Madison

104 King St. Suite 302, Madison, WI 53703

When: Monday March 16
Time: 8 pm


Lama Ole Nydahl on the four preliminary practices:

"It is impossible to overestimate the value of the Ngondro, the four foundational practices of Tibetan Buddhism. In a direct and very practical way, these preliminary practices bring forth our potential while removing the veils which keep us from experiencing and expressing our Enlightened nature."

This lecture will be given by traveling teachers Maxi and Gerhard Kukuvec, who are students of Lama Ole Nydahl.

The lecture include an introduction into Buddhism and the Diamond Way approach (also known as Vajrayana or Tibetan Buddhism). Lectures last up to two hours and include Q&A and a short, guided experience of our main meditation practice.

There is a $10 suggested donation.


Maxi and Gerhard became students of Lama Ole in 1983 and 1985, respectively.They established the Diamond Way Buddhist Center in Graz in 1986 and still currently live there with their family.


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.
