Prime Minister Narendra Modi on his two-day visit to the Himalayan nation, addressed students at The Royal University of Bhutan.
In his address to the students, Prime Minister Narendra Modi also said that much of the content in his book 'Exam Warriors' was based on the teachings of Lord Buddha. PM Modi also stated that the most important element was the importance of positivity.
"Can I tell you something? Much of what I wrote in Exam Warriors is influenced by the teachings of Lord Buddha, especially the importance of positivity, overcoming fear and living in oneness, be it with the present moment or with Mother Nature," he said.
PM Modi was speaking about the commonalities between the two countries, one of them being the worship of Buddhism.
"Anyone visiting Bhutan is struck as much by its natural beauty as by the warmth and simplicity of its people... It is natural that the people of Bhutan and India experience great attachment to each other, as we are close not just due to our geography. Our history, culture and spiritual traditions have created unique and deep bonds between our people and nations.
"Whether I look at Bhutan’s past, present or future, the common and constant threads are - deep spirituality and youthful vigour. These are also the strengths of our bilateral relationship.
