Introducing Druk Amitabha Mountain
Support our nuns (www.drukpa-nuns.org)! Druk Amitabha Mountain in Kathmandu, Nepal, was founded by His Holiness the Gyalwang Drukpa (www.drukpa.org), the spiritual head of the Drukpa Lineage, in 1989. It was gradually and steadily transformed into the home of more than 300 nuns coming from remote places in the Himalayas and is now the main branch of Druk Gawa Khilwa Nunnery. Druk Amitabha Mountain is managed actively by the nuns. This short documentary gives a vivid background of the development of Druk Amitabha Mountain, as well as His Holiness the Gyalwang Drukpa's commitment in promoting gender equality within the spiritual community of Himalayan Buddhism.
