The name Bhutan originates from the Sanskrit ‘Bhutan’ which means ‘end of Tibet’ or
‘Bho-Atan’ means the crown – the logo ‘Highland’. Although known as Bhutan in the outside world, Bhutanese define their own country as the land of the Draco Yule or Thunder Dragon. ‘Draco’ means ‘dragon’ and the Tibetan Buddhist dominant Dracupa school.
The documentary history of the kingdom begins with 74 A.7 and DD, along with Guru Padma Sandhu, also known as Guru Rinpoche, who made his legendary journey across the mountains from Tibet to the back of the lion. He reached the Peru Valley,
which is also known as the Tiger Nest, on Vikistan Lakh. Guru Rinpoche has not only been recognized as the founder of Nyingampa Religious School but is also regarded as the second Buddha. In the ensuing centuries, many great masters preached that belief, which led to the complete elimination of Buddhism in the Middle Ages. Although initially sectarian,
the country was eventually united under the Mahayana Buddhist Dracupa Kagyup sect in the 17th century by the Saint / Administrator Shabdringa Ngawang Namgyel. The Ngawang Namgyel mentioned a comprehensive system of laws and created a chain of dungeons that protected each valley during unstable times and now serve as the religious and administrative center of the region.
Over the next two centuries, civil war broke out and regional governors became more powerful. At the end of the 19th century, the Tronaga governor overthrew all of his rivals, and soon afterwards, Bhutan’s overall leader was recognized. The Governor of Trunga, Sir Eugene Wangchuck, was elected as the first king of Bhutan in 1907 by representatives of the monastery community, civil servants and people. The country now has a constitutional system.
