Events

We have launched an event series about Diamond Way history inspired by Lama Ole’s book Riding the Tiger. The Europe Center will host these weekend events annually for the upcoming years.

The next weekend is scheduled for March 13–15, 2020. It will focus on the early days of Lama Ole and Hannah’s work, with various traveling teachers who took refuge in the late 70s and early 80s. We are still working out the details, but please save the date on your calendars!

These weekends are a chance to go deep into our Kagyu family history in the West, sparked and driven by the tireless work of Lama Ole and Hannah. If you are not able to join yourselves, you might encourage others from your sangha to come.

Rafal and Artur will join us for a weekend of meditation and teachings on “View, Meditation and Action in Diamond Way Buddhism”.

Artur took Buddhist Refuge in 1994 and has been teaching on behalf of Lama Ole since 2006.  He works  at Jagiellonian University in Krakow, where he teaches Tibetan language and Buddhist philosophy. He is the author of several books and is a translates from Tibetan into English and Polish.

Rafal became a student of Lama Ole Nydahl in 1987 and from 1994 has been involved in the Warsaw Buddhist Centre and is responsible for the design of the “Diamentowa Droga” magazine and books in Polish. He has been giving Buddhist lectures since 1999. He lives and works in Warsaw.
