Summary:
In the far reaches of Bhutan, a tiny Buddhist kingdom nestled between Tibet and India, monks gather in the mountains to prepare for several days of dancing and meditation. Each year, monks dressed in celestial robes and wearing wooden masks perform a sacred dance that both purifies and cleanse away negative emotions such as fear, greed or anger.
