New Year’s Eve in Bhutan at an old manor house that once housed a Bhutanese nobleman with a
two wives and children. There are also three Buddhist Temples in the same estate, where the preserved
relics brought back from Tibet. Beautiful garden, restored but preserved
the former appearance of the manor house – will not leave you indifferent. We will celebrate the New Year together
with our neighbors, the Bhutanese will sing songs for us and we will make a round dance
around the fire. And on January 1, invited monks will conduct Puja – a Buddhist
ritual for us to have a prosperous New Year. A unique experience, a blessing,
Getting to know Bhutanese culture and people will be a great gift for the New Year.
We will also visit the most significant and sacred places in Bhutan.
Join us in our celebration!
The mysterious little kingdom of Bhutan is located in the Himalayas, between India, China and Nepal. In Bhutan we will see the phenomenon of a country untouched by the achievements of modern civilization. Limited access to the country for tourists and its isolation from the outside world allow it to preserve its national identity and authenticity, not for nothing it is called “The Last Shangri-La”. Bhutan is the last place on the planet where the purity and pristine nature and wildlife, simplicity and openness of people have been preserved. People there wear national costumes, and until a few years ago there was no television or radio in Bhutan. Tibetan culture has been preserved here in its purest form. This is the land of Buddhism, purity and enlightenment.
Bhutan is often rated as the happiest country in the world, and the economy here is not measured by Gross Domestic Product (GDP) but by Gross National Happiness.
In Bhutan, every woman is a dakini, a demigoddess, and every man is a tantric yogi. This is the land where the tantric guru Padmasambhava and his wife Yeshe Tsogyal practiced meditation. The Tantric couple traveled from Tibet to Taksang, an ancient cave temple, above the “tiger’s den” cave. Yoshe Tsogyal turned into a tigress on whose back Padmasambhava flew to Bhutan. Even today, the Buddhist Tantric tradition of Nigma brought by the precious guru has been preserved in Bhutan.
The doors to this amazing realm were not opened until 1974. Traveling independently in the country is forbidden to this day, and you can only get here by buying a tour.
