Where is Bhutan?
Bhutan is a small country the size of the US state of Maryland with 800,000 people, located in the Himalayas, in a nexus of the delicate power balance between, China (Tibet), Nepal, and India’s chicken-neck states. Bhutan is a clean, quiet, and peaceful land of 70% forest with a Constitutional Monarchy, two-house Parliament, and some 12,000 Buddhist monks.

Who are the People of Bhutan?

Bhutan is the only country in the world that has never been conquered or colonized. Bhutan is known for its unique approach to measure progress by Gross National Happiness rather than Gross National Product. Resilient, kind souls with strong physical nature descended from ancient, pure Buddhist roots, never indoctrinated by controlling religions, Bhutanese people retain their deep, spiritual connection to the sacred land.

In the past 30 years the entire country has been on an accelerated path to enter modern times after eons of isolation. Now Bhutan has over 70% literacy, and all schools are in English, which is spoken by anyone under 50 years old. Summers are temperate, winters are cold, and it almost never snows.

Bhutan is Protected by the White Dragon, the “Druk Karpo” Bhutan is the land of the “Druk Karpo”, the “White Dragon”. It is also called the “Thunder Dragon”. This is the true name of the country. The sacred White Dragon symbolizes protection, purity, and multi-dimensional power. The “Druk Karpo” is usually depicted clutching jewels in his claws symbolizing the country’s wealth. The nickname “Bhutan” came from a British mispronunciation of a central province of “Bumthang”, the site of an early meeting between British Military and Druk Royalty, and the mispronounced name stuck.

Who are the 12,000 Members of “Seeds for Enlightenment” WeChat Groups?

Lama D’s daily classes now reach 12,000 members via WeChat or Telegram. His group is called  “Tharpi Sabuen”, meaning  “Seeds for Enlightenment”.  Lama D takes no money for his classes. The group receives generous voluntary donations via bank transfer, and uses these funds to sponsor many gatherings, blessings, meals, and local events. His website is

Lama D started a small WeChat group during the lockdown in 2021. Within 2 months, he had over 5,000 members. Surprisingly, when the lockdown ended, the groups kept expanding! He does all this from Bali, Indonesia. Tharpi Sabuen members are online every day. The group is supported by generous contribution, which it uses to sponsor countless activities and blessings to benefit the people of Bhutan and the world. Tharpi Sabuen has received praise from His Holiness Je Khempo, Bhutan’s highest spiritual head who is on a par with the Dalai Lama, however in the ancient Bhutan tradition.

The goal of Bhutanese Mahayana and Vajrayana Buddhism is to protect all sentient beings from suffering, and offer an opportunity for enlightenment to everyone. Lama D teaches members how to plant seeds via every word and action, in order to build virtue, so that upon death one can graduate beyond the realms of Samsara, illusion, and impermanence.  Lama D teaches practical skills including meditation, how to balance the mind, and how to live in the modern world without creating Karma.  


How is Bhutan Protected by the White Dragon?

The Drukpa Lineage of Bhutan was founded by 12th-century Lama Tsangpa Gyare, the 1st Gyalwang Drukpa. As he began to build the Ralung Monastery, there was a terrible storm. He heard violent thunder, saw nine roaring dragons rising from the ground into the sky, and he heard a “Cloud-Voice” or roar of the dragons. Understanding this to be an auspicious omen, he named the monastery Druk-Ralung, for the “Thunder Dragon”. His disciples were called Drukpa, or “Those of the Thunder.” Followers of this school were simple people happy to live with few material possessions. They were known for their deep service and practice of the Dharma, the Sacred Path. It is important to remember that Bhutanese Buddhism has its roots in early Bön Buddhism over 20,000 years old, an indigenous spiritual tradition that is somewhat shamanic in nature. One of the most sacred books of Bön is “The Scripture of a Hundred Thousand Dragons” (Klu).

Bhutan National Emblem of Druk Karpo, the “White Protecting Dragon”.

Under the protection of the White Dragon, Bhutan is called Druk Yul, or “Land of the Thunder Dragon”. The Bhutanese people call themselves the “Drukpa”, meaning “Dragon people”. Bhutanese Kings are called Druk Gyalpo, or “Thunder Dragon Kings”. The current King of Bhutan is Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck, the 5th Druk Gyalpo.

How Did Three Great Seed Lamas Bless and Protect Bhutan?

Many important turning points in the history of Bhutan came from the Blessings of Three Seed Saints:

1. Padma Sambhava (8th century), who cleared the demons.
2. Lama Tsangpa Gyare (12th century) who saw the White Dragons and named the Druk White Dragon Lineage.
3. Ngawang Namgyal Zhabdrung Rinpoche (17th century) who powerfully ruled, blessed, and protected the country for many centuries.

These three important saints had higher visionary powers, and planted the seeds for a peaceful, free Bhutan, guarded from evil forces. Since Dragons exist in another dimension, to most people they are invisible. Only Lamas and persons with extraordinary higher virtue can see Dragons. The White Dragon resides all around and everywhere, to protect the land and people of Bhutan.

The Dragon’s protection is powerful.

When British tried to invade the country, a miraculous event took place. As British and Bhutan forces faced each other, one of the Bhutan soldiers’ old-fashioned guns accidentally mis-fired. The the bullet struck the British one-armed general right in the center of his forehead. He was killed instantly. Everyone on both sides was surprised and shocked,  When the British General collapsed, his troops fled in terror, leaving all their equipment behind. The British never returned. Perhaps that is why Bhutan is the only country on earth never colonized by a foreign power. Bhutan is a lucky, peaceful place that was quite isolated until recently. Bhutan had zero Covid deaths. Perhaps for the above reasons, Bhutanese people are happy, and do not carry the same layers of fear and beliefs prevalent in other nations.
