About this title


Practical Buddhism aims at helping the beginning student learn to make every daily activity - all experience - a step on the direct path to Enlightenment through the teachings of the Kagyu lineage of Tibetan masters.

In the West, Buddhism has provided both philosophical and psychological systems to transform confusion and suffering into heightened states of awareness, fearlessness and joy. By removing obscurations and undesirable mental patterns, one can see things as they really are and come to know one's true nature.

Each individual, however, must learn to embody and integrate these teachings into the daily complexity of modern Western living, so that one's knowledge and actions become an inseparable totality.

While intended to be brief, this booklet contains a concise explanation of the proper "view" and very practical advice on how to cultivate awareness in daily life.

About the Author:

In 1969 Ole Nydahl and his wife Hannah became the first Western students of H.H. the Karmapa, the head of the Kagyu tradition in Tibetan Buddhism. After their years of practice in the Himalayas, he authorized them to teach and start centers in his name. Ole transmits the blessing of the lineage and travels, as an authorized lama and Buddhist meditation master.
