During his stay at the Europe Center, Lama Ole Nydahl gave a public lecture about “Buddhism Today – The Nature of Mind” in the sold-out Immenstadt town hall, the Hofgarten.
In front of a crowd of 840 listeners, he emphasized the closeness of Buddhism and science, on how today’s research of molecular physics and neurophysiology actually proves Buddha’s timeless, over 2500 year old teachings to be true more and more. Buddha wanted his students not to believe without checking, but to know and experience themselves.
In the foyer of the sold-out lecture hall, Buddhist generosity was spontaneously put to practice: many of Lama Ole’s students from Immenstadt returned their tickets in order to enable people who came for the first time or from very far away to get a seat.
After the lecture and answering the audience’s questions, Lama Ole gave blessing to everyone for hours and then joined the party in the town palace of Immenstadt, open to everyone interested.
