Nordic Course 2020: Lectures on Mahamudra by Lama Ole Nydahl

Portrait of Lama Ole Nydahl during one of his lectures

The Nordic Course is a relatively recent touring “tradition” with our main teacher Lama Ole Nydahl visiting one of the Scandinavian countries every few years and giving lectures there, as opposed to the more accessible and populous mainland Europe and the big countries in the rest of the world that he spends most of his time in.

This year, the Nordic Course will take place in Oslo, Norway. The lectures will focus on the essential teaching of Karma-Kagyu lineage, Mahamudra. They will take place over the weekend of 5th to 7th of June.

It will be almost 5 years since the lama last visited Norway and we are very glad to be able to welcome him back and host him again!
