Mahamudra - The Great Seal

With Lama Ole Nydahl

28. March - 2. April 2018 Messehallen Kassel


Dearest Friends,

we are looking forward to a multi-day course with Lama Ole Nydahl and our Diamond Way teachers and friends from all German and international centres and groups.

We will receive explanations on the Diamond Way and the Great Seal from Wednesday evening to Monday noon and will have plenty of time for our own practice.

The conditions on the exhibition grounds are unique: a spacious family hall with integrated childcare facilities, team tents and camp beds, camper van and caravan sites as well as indoor camping make it possible for us to spend a special time with friends.

Start on Wednesday evening at 8pm. Closing on Monday afternoon at 2pm.

Children and Teenagers

There will again be childcare. Children and adolescents are welcome to participate in the course (lectures or childcare).

However, the following still applies: The parents are responsible for supervising the entire course.

All young people between 10 and 18 years of age are kindly requested to submit a completed declaration of supervision so that they can be admitted. This can be downloaded here.


There will be child care in the family hall for our young course participants, again. Care will be provided in 3 age groups for children from 4 to 12 years. From Thursday to Monday there are games, handicrafts and tobebegote as well as excursions to the surrounding area. On Easter Sunday we visit the zoo at Rammelsberg and with a lot of luck we will meet the Easter bunny there.

Children from the age of 7 please bring swimsuits.

Please note that for safety reasons kickboards, roller skates and the like may only be ridden in the family hall and the marked outdoor areas of the exhibition grounds.


Two recreation rooms are available for teenagers. There will also be a professional graffiti project on probably two days! Please keep € 15,- contribution towards expenses ready for this. Further information on site.

:> OLE <:


The gompa is carpeted again. Blankets and socks are definitely an advantage. And please don't forget your meditation cushions!


We provide full catering on site. Food is included in the course price. The cafeteria serves snacks, drinks and good coffee and offers plenty of space for a pleasant get-together.


We have again the possibility of different sleeping options on site. These are included in the course price.

Indoor-Camping With 4 halls we have plenty of space for camping under the fair hall sky. Whether in your own tent or in a team tent with friends, on the camp bed or simply on the carpet with sleeping mat and sleeping bag - more is possible without getting wet. The new hall will be especially suitable for families with children, where we plan extra showers.

Team tent
Booking of a complete team tent (e. g. for your own Sangha) with 12 persons is now possible again .

Outdoor camping in the parking lot
The generous parking space situation makes it possible for us to have enough space for caravans and campers. This year, we will once again be taking care of the electricity supply and a night toilet in the parking lot.

Hotels and caravans for rent nearby
A list of cheap hotels in the area can be found here.
