Bringing Smiles Back To Ladakh

A series of cloudbursts on August 5th rocked the peace of Ladakh and brought a state of devastation never before experienced by anyone in this remote Himalayan region.

Ladakh is described as 'my homeland' by His Holiness Gyalwang Drukpa and Drukpa UK, in conjunction with Live To Love UK, has been running an appeal  for funds to help to Bring the Smiles Back to Ladakh.

If you have been touched by these images and stories and would like to contribute to the Ladakh Disaster Humanitarian appeal we urge you to visit our How To Donate page to make a donation via Paypal, using the Live To Love donation buttons. Alternatively, you can send a cheque to Drukpa UK (Ladakh Disaster Appeal), 114 Harvist Road, London NW6 6HJ. 

So far we have sent £9,000 to the Live to Love Charitable Foundation in Hong Kong for immediate relief purposes and we would like to express our heartfelt thanks to everybody who has contributed so far.

Thank you for your continuing help

Nepal Bhutan pilgrimage 2010

Pilgrimage to Bhutan and Nepal from August 6th to 30th, 2010

>

Drukpa Plouray, the European headquarters of the Drukpa lineage, is organising a pilgrimage to Bhutan and Nepal with the Venerable Drubpon Tenzin Ngawang, from August 6th to 30th this year.

The Venerable Drubpön Ngawang will be visiting the London centre from Friday April 30th to Sunday May 2nd. The Venerable Drubpön Ngawang has been His Holiness The Gyalwang Drukpa's representative in Europe for over 20 years now. Those of us who have had the good fortune to meet him will already appreciate his vast understanding and experiential knowledge of the dharma, concealed behind his open and unassuming manner. He is indeed a true spiritual friend.

The Venerable Drubpön Ngawang will be teaching on Guru Yoga as well as leading Guru Yoga practice.

reel1-1-00442114We were extremely honoured and delighted that the head of the Drukpa Lineage, His Holiness the Gyalwang Drukpa,  was recently able to pay an impromptu visit to the new Drukpa Kunga Peljor Centre in London. His Holiness spoke about the importance of a centre in the community and encouraged us to grow stronger and become more active.

We were all very grateful to His Holiness for taking time out of his busy schedule to visit the London centre.

Visit of Ani Lhamo - January 2010

We also recently hosted a French nun,  Ani Lhamo, normally resident at the Drukpa European centre in Brittany,  for a weekend of teachings on 'The Four Thoughts Which Turn the Mind From Samsara'.  Ani Lhamo also led Shabten (long-life) accumulation practices for His Holiness's well-being, which are now a regular part of the centre calendar.   We thank Ani Lhamo for her first teaching visit to London and for her enthusiastic and inspirational instructions.  We hope she will return again later in the year.
