Current place:



Do you observe JANGSEM Mondays?:
Indeed for my three of us, everday is Jangsem Monday.

What do you think about Jangsem Monday movement?
I should say this is something that is doable by everyone and the easiest way to accumulate merits by being meatless for a day.

Why do you think it's important to go meatless?:
Firstly being a buddhist country if we are to consume meat then it is a contradiction to where we live and what we do. Secondly I strongly believe in what is preached by Buddha that those animals on our plates are once our parents, so its unimaginable. Thirdly I also believe in scientific reasoning that its incapable for our digestive system to break down all those raw fleshes and we land up having so many stomach disorders.

Are you a vegetarian or vegan? If yes for how long and why?:

Yes, Its my tenth year being vegan. It was in the year 2008, right after my twelveth grade I came to Thimphu. One fateful afternoon I was at home watching Ethometho TV channel. I was like, Oh my god! I could not tolerate the pain when I watched a documentary titled "mercy killing".from there on I turned vegan.

Has it benefited you and how?:
It benefitted my family immensely as we could remain clean and most importantly I am happy being a vegetarian mother to healthy vegetarian son. Its wrong to believe mother shoukd be non vegetarian to have a healthy baby.

What are your Favorite veggies and fruits?:
Favorite veggie is spanich and fruits are apple and orange.

Your Favorite animals? Domestic or wild?:

My favorite animal is dog.

What do you believe in or should we say your motto in life?:

My motto in life is, do good, be good and good things will bounce back to you.

What is your message to everyone on going meatless?:

Let us not forget that
