In his painting “Home Bound”, Asha Kama reflects in a unique way the mood you are in while walking on Buddha’s paths. Many of the holy sites, such as monasteries and Chorten, are built in remote locations, integrated into the wonderful and green countryside of Bhutan. One might say that a view like this is a landmark of the Buddhist kingdom.
