Riding the Tiger
Risks and Joys of bringing Buddhism to the West
from Nydahl, Lama Ole
New second edition
After their years of study and practice with H.H. Karmapa, work in the West starts for Hannah and Ole Nydahl. A basement in Copenhagen becomes the first Tibetan Buddhist center in Europe, and rusted-through VW-Busses get them everywhere. This book is the inside story of the development of Tibetan Buddhism in the West. Ole Nydahl highlights both healthy and unhealthy tendencies in the light of the Buddhas ultimate aim: To bring about the fully developed beings whose every activity blesses the world.
