These trees had a meeting or a meditation together...for sure for a long time:)


I love trees,


When I was a child we had an apple tree in our garden that had two branches that were just perfect for me to climb on,


From there I could climb a bit higher, but mainly these two perfectly positioned branches were “my tree house”. I imagined my kitchen, sleeping room…my secret play house up there.


A feeling of perfect happiness often comes to me when sitting under a tree, with the sun shining through the leaves, with the sound of very soft wind through the branches…hmmmm…and sitting under this tree with those I love… for a nice pic nic or a nice meal…or just resting……this is perfect happiness!


I also remember on hot days finding shade under a tree and once on a very sad day finding relief under a tree in autumn and feeling the golden leaves falling on me like soothing gold falling from heaven…


And what joy to pick fruits in a tree! Cherries, apples, plums…


I remember travelling through the high plateau of Tibet, or through the desert…not a tree in sight for hours and hours…and then suddenly there is a tree…what a relief! Where there are trees, right away people settled around…humans need trees for living! They are our close relatives really,


Here in Bhutan 68% or 72% of the land is covered by forest. It is even written in the constitution that it has to stay this way.

The ecological balance is so fragile here in the Himalayas and global warming is affecting the natural balance of nature in a very concrete way, landslides, deforestation etc, so the government wisely has for seen the importance to protect the forest for the wellbeing of all of us.


Many trees here are not just normal trees…they have still their rights and their power…Nath said they feel like in the Lord of the Rings : the Ents…I know what he means.


When my grandchildren were here we saw through their eyes the faces in the trees…we felt the life and the characters of the different trees, some very friendly, some quite frightening …once we saw a “tree Sangha” meditating together!


Here some of the trees we meet on our pilgrimage hikes:

Look at this venerable old tree! He really is "someone"!
Look at all these subtle autumn colors...we see them changing every day...where do the colors go.....?
A Bodhitree in Punakha Dzong
Endless forests everywhere....with tigers, bears, snow leopards, monkeys...and the Yeti?
What beauty!
