Our teacher, Lama Ole Nydahl

Lama Ole Hamburg 2014

Lama Ole Nydahl is one of the few Westerners fully qualified as a Lama and meditation teacher in the Karma Kagyu tradition.

In 1969, Ole Nydahl and his wife Hannah became the first Western students of H.H. the 16th Gyalwa Karmapa. After three years of Buddhist philosophy studies and intensive meditation training Ole Nydahl began teaching Buddhism in Europe at the request of the 16th Karmapa. He has since been travelling and teaching worldwide, transmitting the blessing of the lineage, and has founded 700 centers for lay Buddhists around the world.

Lama Ole unites, in a unique way, ancient Buddhist wisdom with the modern Western lifestyle.
