COMPASSION AND WISDOM | Center lecture by Nicolas Ale

Where: Madison

104 King Street STE 302, Madison, WI 53703

When: Monday April 6
Time: 8 pm


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

"While developing compassion and wisdom, one's practice can infinitely benefit by continuously filling the mind with good impressions. They create surplus and space so that whatever happens is experienced as beyond personal."

This lecture will be given by traveling teacher Nicolas Ale, who is a student of Lama Ole Nydahl.

Lectures usually last up to two hours and include an introduction into Buddhism and the Diamond Way approach (also known as Vajrayana or Tibetan Buddhism). There will also be a short, guided experience of our main meditation practice.

There is a $10 suggested donation.


Nicolas (Nico) currently lives in Montevideo, Uruguay. He took became a student of Lama Ole in 2006, and since then has actively supported Diamond Way center in Montevideo including as a resident for three years. Nico started teaching at Diamond Way Buddhist Centers in 2015 at Lama Ole's request.


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.
