I had an opportunity to listen to lots of Ole’s lecturers. In each of these lectures he publically discussed the issues of migration from lesser developed countries to Europe and US, as well as the issue of Islam. He was strictly against migration and migrants. Just as Karol, who I quoted above, he considered migrants from other parts of the world as unfit to live in Western countries. In his view migrants did not understand Western liberal and humanistic values. Neither did they understand the Western culture.

Ole was openly against multiculturalism. Multicultural groups, in his view, were not cohesive. In multicultural societies people were unable to genuinely connect with one another. Multicultural societies, in his view, were not coming together, as they should.

He did not support multicultural marriages either. He was advising his European students against marrying or even having sex with black people. He was openly advising against having multiracial children. He was very clear that was something that he did not support. He said, I remember it clearly, that such children were confused because they didn’t know who they were. They were also, in his opinion, less intelligent.

His views were supported by his students but gained lots of criticism online.

He would often say, scornfully and with disdain, that Netherlands are already Africa. He spoke a lot about killing of the Dutch journalist who made a critical movie about Islam. He also met with Geert Wildres. There was a photo of Ole and his aide Tomek, posted online, taken during their meeting with Geert Wilders.

France was, in Ole’s view, an exotic Muslim country. He despaired that by the 2050 the birth rate of Muslim children in France will exceed the birth rate of non-Muslim children. France, in his view was lost for the European culture. With its entire heritage.

UK press, in his view, was owned, by India, Pakistan and Middle East. At least that’s what I understood him saying. In his view that was tragic.

He supported American’s right wing and Trump’s immigration policies.

During his lectures in Russia he was very open about his right wing sympathies.

During his lectures Ole was openly advising European and American woman against marrying migrants from less developed parts of the word. Black people in particular. Such marriages, in his view, were made for passport reasons only and would not work. Once the buddy got his visa, residence or passport he would no longer care. The marriage would usually end in divorce and the white woman would be left alone with a multiracial child. In his opinion, the women who were falling prey to such plots would typically have low self esteem. Polish women, of all, had the lowest self esteem in his view.

Ole was heavily criticized for his views on online forums. I however claim that he had a right to have whatever views he had. There is a freedom of opinion and freedom of speech in the West. In my view the problem has been related to the fact that he was teaching one thing and doing another.

His marriage to the woman from Venezuela was one of such inconsistencies. While publically advising against marrying migrants he himself married someone who would have been considered a migrant in Western terms. The marriage ended in divorce.

Despite Ole’s publically presented views, there has never been a case of a black migrant being unwelcome or expelled from any of Ole’s centres. To the contrary, they were welcome.

There was however the case when a black migrant moved to one of the Western countries with his Eastern European wife. This couple played a principal role in splitting the Diamond Way Sangha in this country. They also orchestrated exclusions of Buddhists from the local Diamond Way centre. The excluded Buddhists were white Europeans and were obviously practicing Diamond Way Buddhism at home. The situation in this Sangha was really disastrous and two people died in the process. Although we cannot judiciously claim that these deaths were consequential to the Split of the Sangha, it is fair to say that the dynamics in the Sangha have contributed to these tragic events.

All posts from people who were trying to discuss these atrocities on online forums were removed by Ole Nydahl’s Solicitors. Jan Weber being one of them.

Upon obtaining his first European passport the black migrant and his wife moved to Germany, where another European passport followed. They never met consequences of their actions. To the contrary, their behaviour was rewarded and the black migrant was given a title of a Diamond Way Buddhist teacher. He openly claims to be a Diamond Way Buddhist teacher and allegedly lectures in German Diamond Way centres. Only Ole Nydahl could have nominated him to this role because no one else in the Diamond Way had a power to do so.
