Lama Ole Nydahl is a master of Buddhist meditation, author of a dozen books published in 45 countries in more than 20 languages. At the end of 1960s he and his wife Hannah spent several years in the Himalayas, where they were learning and received the entire transmission from His Holiness the 16th Gyalwa Karmapa, Rangjung Rigpe Dorje, “the king of yogis of Tibet”. It was upon his teacher’s request that Lama Ole began to teach Tibetan Buddhism to people in the West; in the very beginning of his activity Lama Ole received support by Margrethe II, Queen of Denmark. Over more than 45 years of teaching all over the world Lama Ole Nydahl and his wife Hannah have founded around 700 Diamond Way Buddhist centres of the Karma Kagyu tradition.
On June 13, 2015 Lama Ole Nydahl received the award for dialogue, coexistence and peace of the UNESCO Association for Intercultural and Interreligious Dialogue in Malaga (Spain).
The award was granted to him and his late wife Hannah Nydahl for their contribution towards the freedom of speech, compassion and the development of peace and goodness.
In 2016 Lama Ole Nydah was awarded Agvan Dorjiev Foundation’s order for spreading the Buddha’s teachings all over the world, establishing Buddhist centres in many countries and bringing timeless benefit to an immense number of people.
Karma Kagyu finds its roots in the teachings given by the historical Buddha Shakyamuni. It developed in India and later Tibet, and became a practical way to Enlightenment. Over about 1500 years the great Buddhist accomplishers (mahasiddhas) such as Tilopa, Naropa and Maitripa in India and later their heroic yogi successors in Tibet, Marpa and Milarepa, have formed a tradition that proved effective for lay people. Starting with the XIIth century the unbroken incarnation lineage of the Karmapas ensures the existence and power of the school.
Modern Buddhist masters, such as His Holiness the XVIIth Karmapa Thaye Dorje, Sherab Gyaltsen Rinpoche, Jigme Rinpoche, Nedo Rinpoche, and Jamgon Kongtrul Rinpoche continue to bring oriental wisdom to interested people around the world and support the activity of Western Buddhist centres everywhere.
