Where: Diamond Way Buddhist Center Madison

104 King St #302, Madison, WI 53703

When: Thursday January 20
Time: 8 pm

"The more one understands that mind itself is indestructible, the more likely it is that expectations and fears will dissolve and one can rest freely in the moment or act."

- Lama Ole Nydahl, Fearless Death: Buddhist Wisdom on the Art of Dying


Tibetan Buddhism offers fascinating teachings in regards to the process of dying and the moment of death. We understand that what has come together will fall apart, and what is born will die, but that every moment from now can be used to build deep confidence and fearlessness in our own mind.

This lecture will be given by Tasso Kallianiotis, a Diamond Way Buddhist and student of Lama Ole Nydahl.

There is a $10 suggested donation.

The vast majority of our events are open to anyone and everyone, however, this is one of the very few programs geared for current practitioners only.

If you are new to Diamond Way Buddhism we encourage you to come to one our public meditation sessions, lectures at the center or on campus or any other weekend program - thanks!
