He leads meditation and mindfulness courses, and manages the spiritual residential and seminar center ‘Mandalahof’ in Vienna. Peter Riedl has authored the following books:

  • „Auf ins Nirvana – Gespräche über Buddhismus“ (Off to Nirvana – Conversations about Buddhism) (Ibera, 2003)

Meditative absorption is not attained through receiving or experiencing something beautiful, but by reducing the multitude we constantly carry in our heads. It is independent of external circumstances.
