Lama Ole Nydahl comes to the Beaufoy Institute

As reported on our national Diamond Way Buddhism UK Blog, last week Lama Ole Nydahl visited London on a surprise break from his project work, which time he usually spends in one of our larger centres working on manuscripts and answering queries from his students. He came straight to the new London Diamond Way Buddhist Centre, the Beaufoy Institute, from the airport.

Despite London’s extended cold spell and the chilly conditions in the building, on both evenings, Lama Ole Nydahl gave teachings and Q&A sessions for his students in the beautiful main hall of the Beaufoy Institute. As Lama Ole so aptly put it in one of the Q&A sessions “There is no way to enlightenment for a lazy man.”
