Buddhist teachings in Ballina

Buddhist teacher Lama Ole Nydahl (pictured) will be giving a public talk in Ballina next Sunday, February 5, with a particular emphasis on how to integrate Buddhist teachings into everyday life.

A Buddhist master in the Karma Kagyu tradition of Tibetan Buddhism, Danish-born Lama Ole Nydahl has been travelling and teaching in a different cities for the last 30 years. Under his guidance Diamond Way Buddhism has become established in western countries (there is a branch in Alstonville) and is now one of the largest Buddhist organisations in the world.

My recipe is simple: tell people the necessity of finding something which can carry them through sickness, aging and death, and dont be afraid to give them a glimpse of your joy of life, Lama Ole said. Tell people that the mind is like space: open, clear and limitless.

Lama Oles talk, Explore the Space of your Mind Fearlessness, Joy and Active Compassion, will be held at the Richmond Room (behind the library) in Ballina from 7pm. Entry is $20/15.
