Additional Information

A perfect book to introduce Westerners to Tibetan Buddhism. This is the genuinely compelling story, and spiritual odyssey, of Ole and Hannah Nydahl, who in 1968 became the first Western students of the great Tibetan master, His Holiness the 16th Gyalwa Karmapa. Their exciting travels on the worn path between the green lowlands of Europe to the peaks of the Himalayas, led them to experience the skillful teachings of numerous Tibetan lamas who helped transform their lives into "limitless clarity and joy." From their first contact with Tibetan Buddhism in Kathmandu in the form of a lama with extraordinary psychic powers, Ole and Hannah encountered the full spectrum of the Buddhist "view." Their aim in writing this book is "to form a bridge between two worlds, and especially to share with all who are looking for their true being ... an introduction to a time-proven way to Enlightenment." "One cannot really transmit anything, except what one has directly experienced, and the reason many of you will be able to identify with what happened to us is that, deep within, we are so very much alike."

It was this very book that a dear friend of mine found in a book used book store. Ken read Entering the Diamond Way and was so inspired that he wrote Lama Ole a letter. In the comming weeks Ken recieved 2 letters back from the Lama inviting him to come to the retreat that he would give in New Mexico later that year. It has been very exciting that the story line of this book has become the basis for a continued relationship with it's author. Ole and Hannah's spiritual quest at first took them to Nepal and to meet the Karmapa and with Karmapa's blessing has also taken them all around the world introducing westerners to an authentic Buddhist path. Ole has since been to my own city and there is now a thriving Buddhist center in La Crosse WI. I can also remark that after my own exciting journey with Ole and Hannah in the fall of 1999 through Russia, Siberia, Ukraine, and Poland, they have not lost the essence of what this exciting book portrays and still stick to the time...

From the very beginning of the book, it was easy to identify myself with Lama Ole Nydahl, a great truth seeker and consequently a great master of Tibetan Buddhism. His fascinating travels together with his wife Hannah, starting in Nepal in the 60's, as well as their quest for the truth, led them to extensive personal encounters with great Lamas of Tibet. With their influence and after years of learning and practicing, he became a great master and an irreplaceable teacher of Tibetan Buddhism to thousands of westerners in countless countries. His monumental knowledge of Tibetan Buddhism is profoundly transforming and liberating, helping us to achieve a sense of enlightenment. One have a feeling that there really is such thing as art of happiness, and this is one of the best books a reader will ever find on the subject. His words are seeds sown from his heart into all readers of this unforgettable book.
In the sixties Ole and his wife Hannah embarked on an epic overland journey culminating in their meeting H.H. the 16th Karmapa in Nepal. This book tells the compelling story of Ole & Hannah's experiences in becoming students of H.H. and many other great Tibetan lamas. It reflects the exuberant and contagiously upflifting personality of Ole Nydahl. He is an indefatigable teacher and meditation master of great ability, who still travels the globe to broadly inspire Diamond Way Buddhism into anyone who attends his delightful courses and events. He has since founded some hundreds of Diamond Way centres around the world. I recommend anyone to read the book, or - even better - to meet him or his students in person at one of his many Diamond Way centres.
