Despite the lack of military might or economic power in the global arena, Bhutan maintains a distinct authority and a special identity of its own. This preservation of culture and identity is crucial to Bhutan in the quickly globalizing world. Bhutan’s unique identity is reflected through the magnificent architecture, dress, traditional ceremonies, archery, and the everyday Bhutanese way of life. Bhutan’s traditional beliefs and customs stress respect for all sentient beings and encourage values such as tolerance, compassion, respect, and generosity. It’s important that Bhutan never sees its culture diminished in any way. If future generations don’t feel the significance of sustaining these important values and traditions, then Bhutan’s culture will be left in a very fragile state. There is delicate balance between the changes brought upon by the rapidly modernizing and globalizing world and the traditional Bhutanese way of life.
