Bhutanese society is centered around the practice of Tantric Buddhism. Religious beliefs are evidenced in all aspects of life.

People of Bhutan
Clothing:
All Bhutanese citizens are required to observe the national dress code, or driglam namzha, while in public. Men wear a heavy knee-length robe tied with a belt, called a gho, folded in such a way to form a pocket in front of the stomach. Woman wear colorful blouses over which they fold and clasp a large rectangular cloth called a kira, thereby creating an ankle-length dress.

The monastry:
Monks join the monastery at 6 to 9 years of age and are immediately placed under the discipleship of a headmaster. They learn to read chhokey, the language of the ancient sacred texts. A monk's spiritual training continues throughout his life. In addition to serving the community in sacramental roles, he may undertake several extended silent retreats. A common length for such a retreat is three years, three months, three weeks and three days.
