Bhutan is called the land of happiness, where development is measured by the happiness index. Everywhere, you meet soft spoken people, and see monks and nuns of all ages in monasteries that are galore in different parts of the country and in major towns. Bhutan revers its ancestors, rulers, and deities. Bhutanese have several traditions of worshipping the the revered ones. The country has several mythological stories about different deities and what role those play in life of its people or the country in general. After my trip to Bhutan I did several Bhutan paintings in Indian Contemporary Art form. It is believed that a monk by the name Jarog Dongchen acquired the form of Common Raven and flew to Bhutan to protect it. It is for this reason the Common Raven bird is worshipped by Bhutanese: and in fact, it is also the national bird of the country. In this diptych painting the monks in the lower frame are dancing and praying to become Raven. In the upper frame the transition to become Raven gradually progresses. In the monastery the monk abandons the robe and becomes full Raven; and flies into Bhutan to protect it from evil.
