NEW DELHI, HAMBURG, Germany, PARIS, GENEVA and LONDON, November 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Gyalwang Drukpa and the Kung Fu Nuns Collaborate with CERN Scientists on the Relationship between Science and Spirituality

Science and Spirituality literally came together on one common platform when the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) hosted Drukpa Buddhist's Spiritual Head, His Holiness the Gyalwang Drukpa on the subject of cosmic energy.

CERN, WHO, WWF, the Green Cross and other supranational organizations invited His Holiness the Gyalwang Drukpa, the head of one of the world's largest Buddhist sects and founder of the international non-profit organization Live to Love, to speak about the role scientists and spiritual leaders should play in promoting global well-being.  The Gyalwang Drukpa traveled with a dozen Kung Fu nuns of the Drukpa Order - who are renowned for breaking gender roles in the Himalayas - as an example that women are half the solution (if not more) to world health and environmental problems.  The Kung Fu nuns are also trained to work in hospital clinics and recently helped break the world record for tree planting.

The Gyalwang Drukpa said at CERN, "The spiritual community should be working with the scientific community to tackle today's global problems instead of resisting science.  While we may use a different language, we are talking about the same thing and heading in the same direction."

While visiting these institutions, the Gyalwang Drukpa attended the launch of three new chapters to the Live to Love network in Hamburg (Germany), Paris (France) and Geneva (Switzerland).  The Gyalwang Drukpa attended an event in Paris that celebrates his humanitarian work hosted by Live to Love Paris and supported by Prince Edouard de Ligne and Princess Isabella Orsini.

The Gyalwang Drukpa is a great proponent of gender equality, and the Kung Fu Nuns made use of this opportunity to showcase their skills to the world at large, and in the process spread the message of gender equality. Women empowerment is at the core of Gyalwang Drukpa's initiatives, and he has been working very hard along with his supporters and followers to propagate this message.
