Though it is free to practice any form of religion the majority is Buddhist.  Drukpa kaju linage of Buddhism is our state religion.  The southern Bhutanese who have Nepalese origin are Hindus and there is also small group of Christianity.

Central monastic body headed by JeKhenpo, the spiritual abode, consists of Buddhist religion body in the country. Jekhenpo is in equal rank with the king and thus wears yellow scarf. The religion authority is the spiritual guidance and are respected and considered higher by all. Monks do not take part in the election. In every Dzong there is monastic body along with administration to look after the community affair of religious activities.

Whole of Bhutan is dotted with monasteries some way up in the mountains.  Local people visit them on the auspicious days with offerings. In general Bhutanese people are very religious and superstitious. In fact Buddhism is very much interlinked with daily life and activities. Every household would have a alter room and offerings are conducted on daily basis. Bhutanese believe in Karma, the cause and condition of every action good or bad that would lead to good birth or bad birth as the case may be which actually brings good heart in all.

Most important aspect of Buddhist religion would be the fact that every Bhutanese, in the back of their mind set is the love and compassion for others which simply forgives any bad act by others. This all together generates generosity and peace.
