Tucked away between China and India in the heart of the Himalayas, Bhutan remains a relatively little-known country.

Few photographers have been granted permission to enter this remote kingdom, where life quietly unfolds to the rhythm of tradition amid the magnificent, unspoiled landscape. Nearly twenty-five years ago, Matthieu Ricard went to Bhutan to study with Dilgo Khyenste Rinpoche, a highly revered Tibetan Buddhist master and teacher. During this time, he also came to know the royal family. He has continued to return to Bhutan throughout his life, discovering on each occasion more of its treasures.

The Dalai Lama’s French interpreter since 1989, Matthieu Ricard lives in the Shechen Monastery in Nepal.
