As mentioned in the article yes happiness in Bhutan is more to deal with the people's contentment with how much they have or more accurately, how little they have. This is possible to the influence of Buddhism on their lives whereby the middle path (not extremes) holds sway.

The rural Bhutanese who eke out a living from their farms live life one day at a time and every evening after a day of hard work in the fields ends with celebration for the farmers- with drink and song and dance :)
This is happiness at its purest-

Hey all, recommending visiting this website for an online tour to Bhutan. Second best thing than actually visiting here yourself :) Actually, second best thing might be watching a documentary. And then, magazines in full color. Then slides. hmm so this website is only 5th best. Might as well give it a miss :(

The Solar New Year has passed and so has the Lunar New Year. The belief is when your own Lunar sign arrives it is bad luck for you and a lot of prayers have to be conducted- prayers (pujas) done by lamas and chortens (stupas) built. Fortunately I am Bull and not Sheep which is this year. Now this naturally depends on how much one can afford I guess. A rich guy may do a lot of these pujas but no social help but a poor guy may have nothing but still helps his fellowman. Whose Karma is stronger now? That is the question...

Been so long I have not posted anything here that it feels like I'm a stranger. Felt like writing something since today was our Annual Chokor Puja (Prayers). On the left are our lamas (monks) doing their concert with cymbals, long trumpet-type thingys and drums. On the right is what comes next, the Bhutanese dancing. Without it, well, the evening is incomplete. Inset, is me holding a skull used to make the 'nectar' pure by the lamas and more importantly, by me to scare my 5 year old daughter. What more is there to say but "God bless this home and all its occupants" :)
