1. Registration for Lama Ole Nydahl's course in Christchurch is open
We have just started taking registrations for Lama Ole Nydahl's course in Christchurch. Registering is important to us, as we need to prepare beforehand so everything goes smoothly. We are providing dinner on Sunday. If you would like to eat with us, you need to register before the end of February - we will be removing the dinner option from the form shortly afterwards.

Proceed to registration >>>


2. Buddhist movies screening in Christchurch
Before Ole comes to Christchurch, there will be an opportunity to see buddhist-related movies on the big screen. There are two screenings in Christchurch Art Gallery Auditorium available. Here is the schedule:

27th February
, 8:00pm (Saturday)
  "Recalling a Buddha - Memories of the Sixteenth Karmapa" (more info)
7th of March, 3:30pm (Sunday)
  "Buddhism in a Modern World" and "Transparent Lama" (more info)


3. Lama Ole in Hong-Kong, Japan and
Australia.
Christchurch lectures of Lama Ole are part of Australasian summer tour which starts on 24th of February with Phowa in Hong-Kong. Then Lama Ole will be giving a talk in Tokyo, and shortly thereafter he will be visiting several centres in Australia. Have a look on the new website of Diamond Way Buddhism Australia for the most recent information on the dates and topics.


4. Lama24h - the movie
A group of friends is making a movie about Lama Ole's work. This is an international project that intends to show in an easy and approachable way the massive work done by Ole that has lead us to having nearly 600 centres all over the world.
The movie team has already started shooting and also submitted an application for support from the Polish Film Institute. If you would like to learn more about the movie, or support it, keep an eye on this page.


5. Kalachakra Stupa in Karma Berchen Ling (Greece)
After 20 years of work it will finally be possible to build the Kalachakra Stupa in Karma Berchen Ling. This place has been chosen by Lopön Tchechu Rinpoche as the location that will benefit most beings. KBL team wants to involve as many people as possible, and our centers all over the world are already taking part in this great project.

For some visual goodness, visit the KBL website and watch the beautiful video the team has put together recently. You can also find a good amount of information on the stupa itself there.
