Abstract

Himachal Pradesh is a Northern State of India and bears particular types of geographical, cultural and social characteristics. Nowhere in the world that we find this type of cultural and strange social milieu. Geographically, it is a mountainous area with thousands of dangerous precipices with scenic splendour with many of the Himalaya snow-capped mountains. From mountain to mountain, from province-to-province narrow roads are present and they are extremely unsafe.  Environmentally it is the most suitable place for man to lead a happy and healthy life. People are fortunate enough to breathe fresh air and use pure water. Their religious and cultural values are of a unique character and the social life can also be considered to be peaceful and exemplary in nature. Buddhist monasteries in the Himalayan region have been having a profound impact on the cultural and social life of the people for centuries. Some of the aspects of Buddhist cultural values remain unnoticed. This paper tries to prove that there is exceptionality in Himachal culture and its social life. The objective of this research is to show the peculiarity of the Himachal life style to the rest of the world. The research method used in this research work is a qualitative research method based on observed empirical information, and secondary documents are also used.
