Lama Ole Nydahl

Lama Ole Nydahl is one of the few Westerners fully qualified as a lama and meditation teacher in the Karma Kagyu Buddhist tradition. In 1969, Ole Nydahl and his wife Hannah became the first Western students of H.H. the 16th Gyalwa Karmapa. After completing three years of Buddhist philosophy studies and intensive meditation training - including the transmission for a unique Diamond Way Buddhist practice called Conscious Dying (tib. Phowa) - Ole Nydahl began teaching Buddhism in Europe at the request of the 16th Karmapa.
