Abstract

This monograph is the first comprehensive study of the Monpa communities of Bhutan. It gives an insight of their origin, history, their spiritual practices and how they live in harmony with nature. The Monpas sustain the environment as the environment sustains them having being interdependent on each other for thousands of years. This documentation of the Monpas, who are very few in number, living in the Central Bhutan region, is very timely as mainstream culture erodes their original way of life. They are very precious being the last of the remaining original inhabitants of Bhutan with their religion and self-sustaining livelihoods having existed before Buddhism came to this country.
