Visit of H.H. to Hamburg

On January 5th and 6th of 2010 for the first time, His Holiness Gyalwang Drukpa visited the Hanseatic City of Hamburg.

During the reception held in the town hall by the First Mayor of the Free and Hanseatic City, Ole von Beust, H.H. was bestowed the honour to sign the Golden Book of the City. In the framework of the two day event in the Hamburg Curio Haus His Holiness gave both a speech about „Buddhism – a religion?“ and teachings about the question “What is life worth?“.

We, the Hamburg Drukpa, were and we still are very pleased and happy about this honour and the very positive feedback for the visit of this high Buddhist dignitary which was attended by about 700 guests in the Curio Haus and received high media coverage.
