Abstract:

Bhutan: land of the thunder dragon: Explore the tiny Buddhist kingdom of Bhutan and centuries of legends that are part of the Bhutanese spiritual life. The teachings of Guru Rinpoche, the second incarnation of the Lord Buddha, guide the people in their devotion. Elaborate festivals are held throughout the land honoring Guru Rinpoche. From fluttering prayer flags to the rhythmicspin of prayer wheels during meditation, worship to Lord Buddha permeates every aspect of life in Bhutan.

Maya: messages in stone: Unearth the grand ruins and spiritual beliefs of the Maya in Central America. The practices that inspired these mystical temples can still be felt through ancestors who today practice a blend of Christianity and ancient Mayan traditions. Explore the Mayan beliefs in human sacrifice, deities, and forces of nature.
