Bhutanese Society and Culture

This module on society and culture is developed by relating to the four pillars of Gross National Happiness (GNH), with an attempt to establish how culture infuses each of the pillars, thus contributing vitally to the realization of GNH. Through this module, students will not only understand the basic fabric of Bhutanese society, and the fundamental aspects of culture that identify Bhutan from the rest of the world, but also, will acquire a firm understanding of the concept of GNH, from a more cultural perspective which is intricately more pervasive than any single material of GNH. This module will help the graduates to establish themselves as culturally sensitive persons and appreciate the cultural values and principles.
