The Buddhist faith has played and continues to play a fundamental role in the cultural, ethical and sociological development of Bhutan and its people. Religion is the essence of Bhutanese life and society. The Drukpa Kagyu order of the Mahayana Buddhism is the state religion of Bhutan. Buddhism is practiced throughout the country. A small fraction of population in the south practice Hinduism by origins of Nepali immigrants. Bhutan is truly a perfect representation of the perfect harmony of the Buddhist way of life.
