"The way things are" by Lama Ole Nydahl

The Way Things Are” is just the perfect book for all those who search for a modern approach and introduction to Buddhism. The right book for people who are just curious about Buddhism, beginners but likewise a inspiring company for experienced practitioners. The highest teachings on the nature of the mind are like a diamond, transparent and indestructible. Originally coming from India, Buddhism migrated to Tibet and today appeals to educated and independent minds in the West.Lama Ole Nydahl, one of the few qualified western lamas of the Karma Kagyu tradition, is a driving force in this process to bring Buddhism to the West, and this book offers a fresh, exciting summary of the timeless wisdom of the Buddha. This groundbreaking book offers the liberating and powerful methods of the Diamond Way (Vajrayana) Buddhism for readers who want to incorporate Buddhist practice into their daily lives. In a language that is witty, easy to understand and focused on the essentials Lama Ole Nydahl answers the questions that moves people in the West.

How can we use the Buddha’s teaching and realize the full potential of our mind in the world today? By what practices can we see the mind as boundless space? How can we benefit from the daily joys and difficulties in work, family or partnership for our spiritual growth? And what is spiritual growth and how can we recognize it?

“The Way Things Are” answers these and more questions while delivering practical methods for personal development and makes the timeless wisdom of Buddhism accessible to a Western audience, which feels increasingly attracted by Tibetan Buddhism.

Lama Ole Nydahl is one of the few Lamas and meditation teachers in the Karma Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism coming from the West. He teaches Buddhism in Europe and the western world on behalf of H.H. the 16th Karmapa, Rangjung Rigpe Dorje, the spiritual head of the Karma Kagyu school of Tibetan Buddhism. He passes on the blessing of the lineage in a fresh and modern way. He has established more than 600 Diamond Way Buddhist centers in the western world. It is particularly noteworthy that he has taught over 100,000 students the Buddhist practice of conscious dying (Phowa). Lama Ole Nydahl is now working under the spiritual leadership of H.H. the 17th Karmapa Trinley Thaye Dorje.
