His teachings and His work

His Holiness mainly focuses on familiarizing the modern world with the teachings of the Drukpa order and to spread the Buddhist tradition all over the world. He particularly wants to spread the ideals of charity and human dignity across the international community.

His main tasks on a global level include education, nurture, medical care, environmental protection and equal rights of men and women. Political concerns never play a role. He only acts in the sake of humanity. As a superior power He also calls to socially and actively engage in one’s own community.

How does H.H. Gyalwang Drukpa implement his goals? He gives spiritual advice and teaches the traditional rituals and traditions of the Drukpa order. He is the spiritual head of numerous monasteries in India, Tibet and Nepal and creates spiritual centers all over the world – in the past, in the present and in the future.

One of these centers founded by H.H. – which at the same time is the European main center – is located in Plouray/France. H.H. also inaugurated the international publishing company Drukpa Publications. The set of published topics is constantly growing and ranges from introductions into Tibetan Buddhism, the Tibetan calendar for a concrete personal assistance to selected biographies of great Yogis of the Drukpa order.

He regularly gives teachings in different countries, such as France, England, Germany, Switzerland, Poland, Mexico, Peru, America, Australia, Taiwan, Malaysia and Hong Kong.

Thanks to the efforts of H.H. Drukpa Humanitaire and the Druk White Lotus School in Ladakh/India could be founded. In April 2009 He opened the Druk White Lotus Clinic in Nepal. In His own home country He is also taking a leading role and directed the construction and administration of a Nunnery on Druk Amitabha Mountain. The Nunnery not only teaches traditional Buddhist practices to its nuns, but also offers occupational skills, such as English lessons, and computer skills.

In 2007 H.H. launched the global initiative Live to Love. This movement is based on the principle of humanity and wants to transmit a very special message: Everybody can contribute to the well-being of the world.
