BHUTAN: TAKING THE MIDDLE PATH TO HAPPINESS

BHUTAN: TAKING THE MIDDLE PATH TO HAPPINESS

Co-presented by The Bhutan Foundation

BHUTAN: TAKING THE MIDDLE PATH TO HAPPINESS (USA, 2007, 50 min.)

Imagine a country where happiness is the guiding principle of government. Imagine a people who see all life as sacred and the source of their happiness, a place with an abundance of clean and renewable energy, a nation committed to preserving its culture. Imagine a Kingdom where the King lives in a simple wooden cottage and judges his progress by the country’s “Gross National Happiness.” Welcome to Bhutan. But can a place like Bhutan really exist? Can such ideals be realized? This idea is rooted in the simple message Buddha shared with them: happiness lies in the middle path (—Sharlene Oshiro and Associates). Directed by Tom Vendetti. Produced by Tom Vendetti, John Wehrheim and Robert Stone.

Discussion with Dr. Bruce Bunting, President; Ms. Dawa Sherpa, Program Director and Ms. Tshering Denka, Program Associate; Bhutan Foundation follows first screening only.
