An environment of security, peace, harmony, and contentment, supporting a love of life and living, nurtured by our cultural and natural endowments, nourished by individual ethical responsibilities, and guided by the highest institutional and personal standards, will be the true foundations on which to build and further our dream. The full flowering and sustainability of the gross national happiness programme requires the engagement of the essential and the intrinsic, the positive and the creative energies of the Bhutanese people and our institutions. That happening, this abode of the peaceful dragon, the land of our thunder kings, the seat of the peerless Buddha will release a moral force that will light up the world.
