Take for example the recent visit by “Kung Fu Nuns” at the CERN institute in Switzerland. The spiritually cultivated nuns from the Himalyas got a chance to see what another mountain dwelling species, called CERN scientists, has been working on.
“The nuns, all from the Himalayan region, struck poses of hand-chops, high-kicks and punches on Thursday while touring the research center where physicists at the frontiers of science are probing the origins of the universe.”
“Men and women carry different energy,” said His Holiness Gyalwang Drukpa, a monk who ranks only slightly below the Dalai Lama in the global Buddhist hierarchy. “Both male and female energies are needed to better the world.”
