“A wise man may avoid blood and tears on his way to enlightenment, but there is no way around the sweat. Only conscious and one-pointed meditation creates the cracks in the fortifications of our egos that make the mind’s timeless essence shine through. Hard work is unavoidable, especially with prostrations. This practice creates the good impressions necessary for our growth and changes our body from a difficult master to a useful servant.” Lama Ole Nydahl

Karma Berchen Ling is located remotely in the mountains of Peloponnese, a place where one can go deep in the practice in the field of the 9 Stupas.
We will be able to squeeze everybody under a roof, so you need to bring a sleeping bag only. At this time of the year, it is possible to sleep in a tent, but can be rather cold during the night.
* Please mind that the course is for students of Lama Ole Nydahl only, practising in his Diamondway Centers.
