GLOBALO meets His Holiness the Gyalwang Drukpa from Nepal

After three meetings with His Holiness The Dalai Lama from Tibet, it was a special event to meet another Holiness from the Himalaya mountains: His Holiness the Gyalwang Drukpa.

He is a world-renowned humanitarian and environemtal activist from Nepal.


The Drukpa lineage is the grassroots school
 of diverse Buddhism, which celebrates diversity and active community service.

It counts 27 million followers worldwide.

The Gyalwang Drukpa received the United Nations Millennium Development Goals Honor in 2010 and is the leading advocate for Himalayan communities.

During a lunch at the famous Munich Security Conference 2016 he summarized his belief in a nutshell:

All we need is respect. For nature, all creatures, and human beings. A holistic approach to life“

His focus are the Himalaya mountains, where he lives near Katmandu in Nepal.

1.3 billon people depend on the water which springs from the glacies.

This is the roof of the world, where important rivers start which feed into China, India, Bangladesh or Pakistan and all large river deltas in this region.

There are three atomic powers (China, India, Pakistan) next to each other with territorial disputes and little trade or substantive steps towards reconciliation. The glaciers are projected to start melting, given the 2-4 degrees celsius increase in temperature in some decades, resulting in floods and later less water for millions.

The philosophy of the Gyalwang Drukpa rests on these believes:

His Holiness showed that peace needs humanity, reconciliation, fairness, human rights- and a maximum for respect in a diverse world.
