My Green School: An Outline was written to support Bhutan government’s Educating for Gross National Happiness (GNH) initiative launched in 2010. The deeply meditative book presents multiple dimensions of education in the form of the ‘Sherig [education] Mandala’. It discusses and philosophises on eight kinds of greenery, namely natural, social, cultural, intellectual, academic, aesthetic, spiritual, and moral greenery. The book proposes a paradigm shift in education and proposes a more wholesome system that ‘combines the need to sharpen brains and skills with the need to build faith and character.’
