U.S. congressional resolution presented to His Holiness Gyalwang Drukpa

His Holiness the Gyalwang Drukpa was presented with a U.S. congressional resolution from Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY), the U.S. Congresswoman for New York’s 12th Congressional District.

 

The resolution paid tribute to the Gyalwang Drukpa as a world-renowned humanitarian, environmentalist, and champion of gender equality, recognizing his efforts to provide relief services to tens of thousands in the Himalayas following the devastating 2015 earthquake in Nepal; to protect against soil erosion and support clean air through his One Million Trees project; and to empower, educate, protect, and inspire girls and women in the Himalayas and around the world. Other U.S. administration officials were also in attendance of the birthday celebration in Kathmandu, Nepal.
