Gross National Happiness in Bhutan

What happiness is about has rightly become a subject of lots of thought and discussion around the planet, as we approach the end of an era marked by mindless consumerism and a human self centred attitude that is bringing the biosphere to the brink of collapse. We are living in a time where we must address the current crisis with consequent action, where 'walk our talk' has become fundamental. Taking good care of our inner ecosystems (our bodies) is the right start. With our bodies comes a mind that needs taming and cultivation.

Like the Ginkgo tree, the Baobab tree is named as one of the oldest trees on earth. The Baobab tree, in its towering glory, produces pods which resemble coconuts with a hard exterior – inside are the pale and chalk-like fruit chunks.
