Welcome at Drukpa Hamburg

Drukpa Hamburg invites you to learn about the teachings and humanitarian work of the over 800-year-old Tibetan Buddhist Drukpa Order, which is characterized by charity and human dignity. It is also known as "Dongyu Palden Drukpa", the "spiritual lineage of the glorious dragons".


The Drukpa Kung-Fu Nuns

The Drukpa Kung-Fu nuns of Nepal lead an extraordinary life as women who have chosen to live a monastic life. The Gyalwang Drukpa, a tireless advocate for women's equality and climate protection, has given them a truly unparalleled education, which also includes life outside the monastic protocol. As ambassadors of Live To Love, they are achieving great things and have become internationally known as a result. Arte TV provides insights and inspiration in a fantastic documentary.

“When we slow down to let go of judgements, we can truly observe the world and develop understanding of it.”

At the first Drukpa Council in 2009 (ADC), H.H. the Gyalwang Drukpa encouraged the masters of the order to also get to know the centers in Europe and to make people more familiar with the teachings of the philosophy of Buddhism here as well. It is therefore thanks to him that Hamburg is also repeatedly honored by high dignitaries of the Drukpa Order.

H.H. the Gyalwang Drukpa himself has visited Hamburg with a multitude of very beneficial appearances, interviews and meetings and further on in the context of Live To Love various events in Europe.
