Bhutan Festival Dates
There are five sensory fields of liberation in Vijrayana Buddhism: Seeing (thongdrol), hearing (thodrol), touching (regdrol), reminiscing (drendrol) and testing (nyongdrol). The sacred dances of Bhutan offer a well-rounded spiritual experience in all the fields.
Watching sacred dances is believed to remove five outer obstacles, five inner illnesses and five secret delusions. Five outer obstacles are caused by the planet of the upper world, mountain gods of the intermediate world, earth spirits, serpents and death spirits.
