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. After my trip to Bhutan I did several Bhutan paintings in Indian Contemporary Art form. In this painting one sees the tiny stupas (tsa tsas) made of clay placed on the slopes of hills as we drive past the mountain highways from one town to another. The number of tsa tsas indicates the age of the ancestor who passed away. A senior monk explains to a young monk the importance of tsa tsas. Other monks are also walking towards the tsa tsas to worship ancestors.
