Back for Action

 We are very happy to announce that Drukpa Kunga Peljor (as the Drukpa London centre is known) has a new location in Primrose Hill. We received the keys on Friday, by happy coincidence Drubpön Nawang was coming to London for a brief visit on Monday and so was able to host the first practice session. In the next couple of weeks, we will paint and carpet the centre, then announce the new practice schedule. If you would like to help with the redecorating, please contact us.

His Holiness the 12th Gyalwang Drukpa will be leading a walking pilgrimage between 23rd May and the 3rd July 2009, starting from Manali, Himachal Pradesh, and finishing in Hemis, Ladakh. It will cover a total journey of approximately 400km, crossing about five Himalayan passes, the highest of which are Shikunla and Singgela, both measuring approximately 5,200m above sea level. There is a website at Full details on the pilgrimage are available there, including how to take part physically (for the whole pilgrimage or in smaller sections), or by way of sponsoring the walk. Download the yatra-sponsorship-form here.

Today, the Annual Drukpa Council (“ADC”) committee welcomed over 40 Rinpoches, Tulkus and Khenpos to Druk Amitabha Mountain, home of 300 Drukpa nuns. Despite the strikes in Kathmandu which prevented cars from reaching Druk Amitabha Mountain, hundreds of monks, nuns and lay people lined up with khatas to welcome these precious masters. The ADC committee introduced the visiting masters to the premises where the nuns run and maintain a coffee shop, gift shop, guesthouse, temple, stupa and educational halls.
