About the project

The course is organised by Karma Kadjy School, Diamond Way Buddhist organisation of Denmark.

The inauguration of the Copenhagen Victory Stupa is a celebration of the historical moment in 1972, when Hannah and Ole Nydahl first brought the timeless transmission of the Buddhist Karma Kagyu lineage from H.H. the 16th Karmapa, Rangjung Rigpe Dorje to Denmark and then during the next forty-seven years spread it to the West.
