Gods and Sacred Mountains | Animated Nature

In Bhutan many gods play a great role in daily life. The universe is built upon three levels: an »underworld«, a »middle-world«, and a »heavenly world«. On each level, a specific type of supernatural being is located.

The gods of the heavens are supposed to lead the way out of the cycle of rebirths. The gods of the middle level protect man and Buddhism, while the gods of the underworld grant fertility to the fields and to living beings.
