'Journey with Robert Thurman in Bhutan: Buddhist Teachings and Meditations in the Land of the Thunder Dragon' takes you on an inner and outer journey into the heart of Bhutan. In this last remaining Buddhist Kingdom, a 'Shangri-La' in the Himalayas, Professor Robert A.F. Thurman explores the inner science of Buddhism and its expression in Bhutan's development goal of Gross National Happiness.

This intimate look at the Land of the Thunder Dragon explores Bhutan's sacred sites, where Dr. Thurman offers lively teachings and meditations that illuminate central principles of Buddhism, including the four Noble Truths, the preciousness of human life, the immediacy of death, the wheel of life, and voidness and compassion. Dr. Thurman also reveals the history of how Buddhism came to Bhutan and why it is essential for Bhutan's future as a system of education to achieve Bhutan's goals for Gross National Happiness.
