Introduction to Religion and Weddings in Bhutan


Religion in Bhutan

The official religion of Bhutan is Vajrayana Buddhism. Bhutan is a constitutionally Buddhist country, and Buddhism occupies an important position in Bhutan. Buddhism is Bhutan's cultural heritage and the identity of the Bhutanese people. Religious freedom was guaranteed by the king. Of the population of 770,000, about 75 percent follow the Drupa lineage of the Kagyu sect, the Linma sect of Tibetan Buddhism, or other schools of Buddhism. The remaining 25%, mostly lhotshampa, profess Hinduism.

Tibetan Buddhism occupies an important position in Bhutan. Tibet is regarded as a holy place by the Bhutanese, and many Bhutanese visit Tibet every year. The government supports the Kagyu and Nyingma monasteries. The royal family believes in two kinds of Buddhism, Ningma and Kagyu, and many citizens believe in "Guanyin Sect", which means "the Kagyu and Nyingma are combined into one".

The restoration of the temple has been the responsibility of the local government since 1970. Therefore, the economic burden of the monastery is greatly reduced. The famous religious holy places in Bhutan are Punakha Dzong and Tashcho Dzong.

Religion occupies an important place in Bhutanese society and people's life, and has a place in today's politics, economy, military, culture and people's daily life.
