Summary
"Invoking Happiness explains the importance of sacred festivals in Bhutan and how these contribute to enhancing happiness and building harmony among friends and family members. It describes the significance of each sacred dance and includes excellent illustrations and photographs of each of the festivals. This is the first book ever written on sacred festivals performed in Bhutan which focuses on the three major festivals of the country: the Paro, Thimphu and Bumthang Jampa Lhakhang festival. One of the main purposes of conducting these local festivals is to commemorate the sacred deeds of Guru Padmasambhava, who introduced Vajrayana Buddhism to the country in the 8th century. Festival performances provide an opportunity for both spectators and participants to accumulate merit merely through witnessing the sacred festival and cultivating right intention"--Publisher's description
