Securing the Life's Work of Hannah and Lama Ole Nydahl

Intellectual Property

Hannah and Lama Ole Nydahl have dedicated their lives to the transmission of traditional Buddhist teachings and meditation texts and methods to the West. Securing their immense life's work is a crucial function of the Diamond Way Buddhism Foundation. It manages their intellectual property, holding the worldwide legal rights to all of their written and audiovisual works, including translations of Lama Ole’s books and other manuscripts into more than 20 languages.



The Foundation maintains archives of photos, audio and video from various events within the Diamond Way Buddhism activities worldwide. 

The video archive in particular is intended to preserve Lama Ole's lectures from the time before streaming. Volunteers of the Foundation are copying old analog recordings and saving them in digital format. Old tapes such as VHS, VHS-S, Hi8 etc. are being digitalized.
