With happiness on the agenda

Thanks to Anniken Binz ( a9k1 ) for an enlightening post about her upcoming adventure in search of Gross National Happiness in the mystic mountains of Bhutan.

With happiness on the agenda.

Nice post! I am fascinated by Bhutan’s unique efforts to develop and maintain a Gross National Happiness index (GNH) as a measure of standard of living for its people. I am hopeful that future (unbiased) assessments of Bhutanese quality of life will show that such a community sharing spiritual values rooted in Buddhist philosophy (non-violence, compassion, empathy, unconditional love, service to others) will thrive individually as unique contributing members of a society, as well as collectively as a cohesive, peaceful, happy community, with blessings of abundance. ~ Lisa Pearlman 10/03/13
