Book Overview

Life is not always predestined; there are secrets that amend the destiny for better. We wish for happiness almost as our birth-right but seldom cultivate the right cause of happiness. This book in its totality is intended to por­tray how fate can be negotiated without compromising goodness. It reminds the role of individuals to amend their own destiny and prove that they can get better of their fate than leaving it to the dictates of so-called destiny. In brief, it is all about how to coexist harmoniously and to live a happy and fulfilled life without compromising moral values and integrity.

A Foreword by Her Royal Highness Ashi Sonam Dechan Wangchuck and editing by Dasho (Dr.) Sonam Kinga, Jambay Dorji's second book, The Palace of Good Fortune and Good Luck vases is a marvellous piece attempting to make an effort to make every reader understand that one can amend their destiny and prove that they can get better of their fate. It is about how fate can be negotiated without compromising integrity and goodness just as the way our forefathers lived.  It is an intellectual contribution based on our rich tradition and cultural heritage. The book sounds like a magical wonder which would take ages and numerous resources if required know about what is there in it.  125 paged and 16 chapters, the book is a complete and comprehensive guide. Inclusive of chapters about the LungtaPhodrang, Bumter, Soenam Khorlo, Thuen pa Puenzhi among others, the readers are taken on a spiritual journey where they discover and are given a heightened knowledge about ancient and spiritual good luck charms which are available all over the country yet we hardly notice. This ignites the sense of appreciation, understanding and admiration to our fading culture and traditions in this rapidly modernizing world.  The study of good luck vases like the Ku bum, Tse bum, and Yangbum, understanding of significance of Tra shi Pai zey, would mean back tracking into the hundreds of years of rich history inclusive of origin, significance and many more. In present day world where culture, traditions and values seem to be fleeting and slowly vanishing like the scenery outside a train’s window, this piece makes all reader take a breather and look around the world in a different perspective. The author not only attempts to take the readers on a spiritual journey through the hallways of rich ancient knowledge but guides the readers to live a happier life. It is indeed a wonderful read and would be useful to researchers and younger generations.
