Der Himmel über Thimphu
The Sky over Thimphu
Yesterday we received the visit of a famous vietnamese architect, Mr Hao, who comes to explore the possibilities the build a bamboo meditation hall in Bumthang
at the GNH centre site.
I know him from Vietnam, Eurasia allmost made a project with him last year (the Kindergarden project: www.eurasia.org.vn).
Again and again I am in awe
at our « Karma » here.
It brings together so many colorful threads of our destiny…it really is as colorful and artful as some Kira (bhutanese traditional dress) weaving….I am in full respect and
admiration of the weaving patterns of our life,
I took Mr Hao for a sightseing tour around Thimphu,
It was a rainy day with thunderstorms and rainbows, a dynamic constant changing sky
changing…everything is changing….
The opening to western culture, to economic growth is bringing challenges and opportunities that one can only forsee
The wisdom to go about this path of development with
the guidelines of GNH might help the country to find a truly modern, 21st century way.
It might help them avoid some of the destructive elements of western culture, by only taking the most advanced and best practices that ensure
a sustainable and respectful development for humans, nature, future generations and to adapt them in the light of their GNH constitution,
Yes the challenges and opportunities are there....
Der Himmel über Thimphu…the
sky over Thimphu….
Did you see Wim Wenders movie…"der Himmel über Berlin" ? In this film we saw angels flying all over Berlin. Their task was to listen, to comfort, to BE with humans in their desperate search for love,
Yesterday at Buddha point looking at the dynamic sky, I could feel the presence of « the angels" flying over Thimphu
"l'esprit souffle là ou il veut" " The spirit blows wherevere
it wants"...wherever humans keep it alive
