The center offers Buddhist lectures and meditations in the tradition of the Karma Kagyu lineage to all interested parties.Ole Nydahl known as Lama Ole, is a lama and founder of Diamond Way Buddhism. He represents teachings of the Tibetan Karma Kagyu school according to Thaye Dorje. Along with the second lineage holder Orgyen Thrinle Dorje, the Diamond Way belongs to the Kagyu school and is one of the four main directions of Tibetan Buddhism. The Diamond Way is aimed primarily at Westerners and hardly plays a role in traditional Buddhist countries. Since the early 1970s, Nydahl has been traveling the world, giving lectures and meditation courses and founding Diamond Way Buddhist centers.The German word Diamantweg is a loan transfer of the Sanskrit term vajrayāna (vajra means diamond, yāna means way or vehicle). The term Diamond Way is mainly used in German-speaking countries for the Diamond Way Centers founded by Ole Nydahl, whose teaching presentation is called Diamond Way Buddhism.
Ole and Hannah Nydahl were western students of the 16th Karmapa Rangjung Rigpe Dorje, the main lineage holder of the Karma Kagyu school, with whom they developed a close relationship. They studied and meditated with him for three years.
