Karma - cause and effect
Lama Ole Nydahl

Mahamudra is regarded as the pinnacle of Buddha's teaching and means 'The Great Seal'. On the level where all duality melts into non-duality and space becomes joy, subject, object and action are inseperable. Lama Ole Nydahl explains the gradual way leading to this state beyond words, concepts and thoughts. Mahamudra is the basis, way and goal all in one. Only a few Zen and Tibetan Buddhist schools have managed to keep these teachings from the Buddha fresh up to the present day.

Mahamudra
Lama Ole Nydahl
As it is easy to lose sight of way and goal if you want to reach enlightenment on your own, a Buddhist teacher can be very helpful on the way to enlightenment. Buddhism doesn't want to pass on theoretical knowledge but aims for a holistic experience and the realization of the true meaning of all phenomena. Advice for both teachers and students regarding this special, interpersonal relationship are designed to make the learning process easier.

Love and partnerships
Lama Ole Nydahl

In Buddhism, there are different ways to reach enlightenment: alone as a monk or a nun, in a family or as a free yogi. WIth the two latter possibilites one brings together female and male energies to make something complete. Lama Ole Nydahl points out the necessity not to compete with our partner but to support each other side by side. He explains behaviour patterns that come up in relationships and gives concrete advice on how to reach the highest level of a partnership.

Death and rebirth
Lama Ole Nydahl
Buddhism describes death and rebirth very concretely. It gives help and support to anyone who wants to come to terms with impermanence. Lama Ole Nydahl explains the phases of death, the experiences in the intermediary states and gives advice on how to obtain a good rebirth. By direct confrontation death is understood as a natural process and fears can be dissolved.

Meditation
Lama Ole Nydahl
The only difference between the Buddha and us is that he has meditated more. Meditation is an important method on the way to enlightenment but never stands alone. One needs to have an understanding of the methods in order to stabilise any development we make. Lama Ole Nydahl explains the particular phases and goals of a meditation.
