Health care with Kung-Fu? A reality by the nuns of Nepal

Health care with Kung-Fu? A reality by the nuns of Nepal

The nuns of Nepal have originated a health care technique where they upkeep their physical and mental health by extensive practising Kung-Fu. The Druk Amitabha Mountain Nunnery has nuns who live in a country where women are considered inferior to men and as second hand citizens but have resolved to rise above the stereotype that the society had given them. A usual day at the nunnery starts at three in the morning where the residents of the nunnery indulge in meditation and an extensive three hour Kung-Fu workout.

"We are the only nunnery in all of the Himalayas doing deadly martial arts," JigmeYangchenGhamo, a practise of the faith, told CNN's Great Big Story in June. "This is a lifelong  vow that I made to the , and I am very proud of my practice.The idea was that as long as the nuns cook and clean for the monks, they can come back as a monk in their next lifetime and then become enlightened.”

This is the only nunnery in all of the Buddhist Nepal where woman are encouraged to rise above the social stigma that has been associated with woman joining a religious cult where they are treated as inferior to men. They have received accolades for gender equality as well as for their rigorous lifestyles that has kept them so healthy.
