His Holiness The 12th
Gyalwang Drukpa is the spiritual head of the Drukpa lineage
of Tibetan Buddhism. One aspect of his compassionate activity
has been to instigate and oversee several charitable humanitarian
projects. The London based, UK registered charities set up by His
Holiness to help with these charitable humanitarian projects are
the Drukpa Trust and Drukpa UK.
This website is to provide information on His
Holiness’s humanitarian projects. The aim of these projects
is to help his monastic community to survive and to rebuild the
Drukpa monasteries; to give educational facilities for
the people and preserve their culture; and to provide medical
care for people from all walks of life.
The projects to be helped at the moment are: The Namdruk Monastery Restoration; The Amitabha Nunnery in Nepal and a Tree Planting project in Ladakh.
