Mystic Lands, [Disc] 5 Myanmar & Bhutan
Myanmar (Burma): triumph of the spirit: Faith and quiet devotion is a way of life in this reclusive nation, once known as Burma, shackled by military dictatorship and repression. More than 85 percent of the population practice Buddhism. On the path to enlightenment, they makedaily visits to such historic religious sites as the stunning Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon.
Bhutan: land of the thunder dragon: The image of Bhutan as a mythical Shangri-La still exists. Here, Buddhism is morethan a religion, it's a lifestyle. From fluttering prayer flags to prayer wheels, worship to Lord Buddha permeates every aspect of life in an ancient world of magic and mystery that is nearly untouched by the modern age.
