Bhutan — Land of the Thunder DragonThe secret to the happiness in Bhutan and its Gross National Happiness:"Happiness = understanding oneself. Buddhism is a holistic education system.

Bhutan — Land of the Thunder Dragon"The door, though having no lock, cannot be opened.善閉無關楗而不可開."— Tao Te Ching 27When the heart is clean, there is still order even when there is no rule. When the heart is sordid, even when there are many rules, the dirty heart will always try to find a loophole."I ask you to remember a very simple rule of thumb. If you want good government, you need good leaders. You don't get good government by just a good system of government. That is a fallacy.

De curvas é feito todo o universo, o universo curvo de Einstein....I am not attracted to straight angles or to the straight line, hard and inflexible, created by man. I am attracted to free-flowing sensual curves.

How can the world be free from destruction even when eating we express so much greed and selfishness?
