Bhutan - change comes to the Himalayan "Happy Kingdom" | DW Documentary

Bhutan's other name is "The Happy Kingdom." The small Himalayan country has one foot in the distant past and the other in the digital age. It's quite a balancing act for Bhutan's citizens.
No other country has recently undergone more radical change than Bhutan. The millennium brought television, the internet and democratization to the last Himalayan kingdom almost overnight. The capital Thimphu has become one of South Asia's fastest growing cities. At the same time, just a few kilometers to the north, 20 thousand nomads still live from herding yak on the high plains of the Himalayas. This documentary tells of the challenges these people face.
We meet young Chewang , who often has to leave his family for months and trek to heights above five thousand meters in search of the caterpillar fungus, a fabled medicinal mushroom. We also follows the journey of five-year-old Doryi, who is separated from his poverty-stricken family when they send him to a monastery. Meanwhile, the committed organic farmer Choki is trying to bring the advantages of modern life to her village. And 73-year-old bowman Ap Chimi is finding the modern world quite a challenge, so he's decided to compete in his last archery tournament to show youngsters in the village that he can still hit the bull's eye as easily as they do.
This documentary takes viewers on a trip through a time that mirrors Western development in the last century. The loss of a communal life in harmony with nature is juxtaposed against the gains made through globalization. Director Irja von Bernstorff, who has made her home in the Happy Kingdom, gives us a unique peek behind the country's tourist façade to reveal what makes the wondrous world of Bhutan so special.

  • 30 You were born and raised in Islam, this criminal religion that you will leave as an inheritance to your children. Your merciful Allah says in Sura 2:256: "There is no compulsion in Islam, everyone is free to choose his religion." And at the same time he says in Sura 4:89: "Those who leave Islam, kill them wherever you find them." And because of the fear of being killed, you prefer to go to hell? Islam is the victory of fear and cowardice over the truth. It was better for you not to be born than to live like a coward and end up like a good-for-nothing in hell. #PKPCHANNELTV

  • 5 An eagle, it is the ability to fly very high in the sky above all the earth. A prophet, it is the ability to see visions in broad daylight with open eyes, the ability to announce things in advance, before they come to pass. A prophet, it is the seal of infallibility. Cheating or plagiarism, it is when a chicken or a parrot puts on eagle feathers and starts insulting the eagle. And in the A levels exam room in the third vision of 1993, there were cheaters sitting next to me. 12 You hate me for no reason, like the inhabitants of my village. Some of you refused to shake hand with me, including your wife. In 2002, when I wanted to meet you, you received me at Sister Ita's house instead of receiving me at your house and we talked well, and when I left, I was told that you sprayed the chair on which I was sitting with an insecticide. I was afraid of you and I kept far from you. Then in 2004, I heard that you had fasted, kept vigil and prayed against me with Pastor Adon and you had preached that if someone killed me, God would bless that person. I was scared because, you Pastor David who threatens to shed the blood of your own church members in the pulpit, it is not I Kacou Philippe that you will spare.

  • 7 As for you, when I am no longer there, look rather to my Master, the Lord Jesus Christ. There is no greater but Him alone. When I leave, do not seek and do not pay attention to me, a poor sinner saved by grace. The way I came, thus will I leave, without funerals. Yes, some day, I will return to this position of spirit, this divine position, this position that I have been given to see in this glorious experience of 1993. And you pray unto God to send you another prophet after me. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. 8 In 1993, I had seen this glorious experience, It was one morning and I was far from my body, above the ground. I had no eyes but I could see, I had no ears but I could hear, I had no body but I was present. I distinctly saw people, men and women and children in their physical body like you and me this morning and nobody saw me because I was the blowing wind. I recognized the place and the people and I was conscious of everything just like this morning here. What was that? I do not know but some day, when I leave this body, I will return to this divine position. [Kc.30v9] [Kc.34v43] [Kc.51v6] [Kc.97v8-9] [Kc.130v10] [Kc.131v28]

  • 1 Like the prophets of the Bible, in April 1993, I, Kacou Philippe, a man who had never been in a church, I receive in a vision, the visitation of an Angel who commissions me for a Message destined to the whole earth in fulfillment of Matthew 25:6 and Revelation 12:14. This is the account of my conversion, as well as the three great visions of the call and commission as I received them:

  • 5 All of you, members of Buddhism, Hinduism, Shintoism, Taoism, and Jainism, for thousands of years your fathers suffered so much in these practices for a noble purpose. It was not to become rich on the earth but for the final liberation and Nirvana, God's eternal paradise after their death. Today, I, Kacou Philippe, I come to you with the God that you have sought so much. I come to you with the path to purification and to the final liberation that you have sought so much. 7 If a Catholic, Protestant, Evangelical, or branhamist prays on some food, you must not eat of that food. And when a woman in menses throws herself into a body of water such as a river, a beach or a swimming pool, the water becomes impure within a radius of forty meters till the next morning and whoever throws himself into it comes out of it cursed. Until your death, you shall never be a member of Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, Shintoism, Sikhism or Taoism. These are commandments from God today. Even if you do not believe in me, know that I am your prophet on behalf of God just like the president of a country is the president of all the inhabitants of that country including the opposition. And if you disobey these commandments, your end will be the eternal hell of Naraka. [Kc.135v10] #ProphetKacouPhilippe #PKPCHANNELTV

  • 8 And because of money, no one gives himself time for God. The golden calf has defeated the tables of the law. The nations and religions have become disciples and apostles of money. The most powerful god on earth is money. It is for money that mankind studies, thinks, travels, works, marries, fights, obeys and suffers. For money people despise, fight and kill one another. For money, man sacrifices his dignity and honour. It is in the name of money that one decides. 9 When one works, one preaches, one builds houses or establishes businesses, and if the goal is not to make the word of God reach every inhabitant of the earth, then that person is a disciple of money. And even in this Message, if a pastor or apostle uses God's money inappropriately, it is his portion of Heaven that he receives. #ProphetKacouPhilippe

  • 4 Thus, it was revealed to me by the Angel of 24 April 1993 that this satanic trinity as frogs is Islam, Christianity and Judaism. Revelation 16:13 says that they are spirits of dragons and of false prophets that are out to conquer the earth. Hinduism and Buddhism and all religions of the earth are also of the devil but the three spirits of frogs in Revelation 16:13 are: Islam, Christianity and Judaism. These three religions claim to be of Abraham. These three religions believe in Moses. These three religions do not believe in living prophets but each of them claims to be of a prophet whom it has not known. Each of them has its own holy book. And the three do not need a living prophet but they are waiting for the Messiah who is yet a prophet. They are the three spirits of frogs of Revelation 16:13. [Kc.1v10] [Kc.59v33] [Kc.113v10] [Kc.118v11] 3 Revelation 16:13 says, "And I saw out of the mouth of the dragon, three impure spirits, as frogs.” Who are these three spirits of frog in Revelation 16:13? Who are these three demons that roam over the earth? No man has ever revealed the true identity of these three demons as it is done for Revelation 17 which is the Roman Catholic church.

She said that my great grandfather was bit by a tiger and the wound never heel for a very long time and he tried every old age medicine back then. Until one day he used “cat poop”, and the wound suddenly heeled. This was way back in the old day in Cambodia when no modern medicine.

Do your own research and compare it Gods Holy Word, The Gospel of Jesus Christ and you will find that THE only way to eternal life is in Christ Jesus ALONE. I pray for these lost souls in this documentary. Especially the young who seem to have no choice. Jesus The LORD of LORDS has the final say for these youngsters, for the parents who lead them astray, and most importantly, for the teachers who are preaching and teaching such filth from satin himself!

The documentary reflected Bhutan & it's citizens as a whole - from sadness comes joy & happiness and I hope it will ever last for centuries to come. But for that the whole globe country must address the global warming issue cause Butanese people are facing it's adverse effect- their glaciers are melting, monsoon are coming late or dry and the mountains are feeling it's effects as well with all their good deeds. They are facing the adverse effect from the greeds of economic giants action.

  • This movie truly generated uncertainty in my soul. This documentary's narrative and what it shows in the story are contradictory. "The Happy Kingdom" of no poverty - in reality - a place filled with sadness, struggle with harsh nature, money problems and religious brainwash. The drama of people and small children are wrapped in positive music and an indifferent vioce of a narrator. The "Happy Kingdom of Buthan" as the country is advartising itself infront of the entire world is a lie. I can't see any difference between what is there, and what is everywhere else in the world.

It got me reminiscing about my yonder days especially about the part where the parents cry seeing off their son into the monastery. This video made me realize that I have been so influenced by social medias and the city life (though Thimphu isn't a city) that I have totally forgotten about my roots and become blind to the greatness the rural life back home at my village provides. No stressing about having a lavish lifestyle or keeping an appearance, village life makes you be the simple wholesome you where you become one with the nature, no complexities but the simple genuine you and that prestine genuine happiness. Thank you for reminding me about my roots, it really got me reflecting about the present me.
