Abstract

This article examine the applicability of the spiritual indicators in GNH, which mainly evolved in Bhutan, to Taiwan in a comparison of their religion. Although both two sites share some commonality in religious participation level, we propose to consider the multi-religious behaviors in Taiwan for the applicability. The adjustment for indicators to present the influence of multi-religious impacts, avoid the bias of Buddhism as well. We suggest that Taiwan government must adopt the impact how religious influence wellbeing while measuring the happiness in Taiwan.
