Ura refers to the village Ura Makrong in Bhutan.—Ura is named after Urgyen Guru Rinpoche, also known as Padmasambhava, the great Indian mystic credited with bringing Buddhism to Bhutan in the 8th century. Older people in the region still call the valley Urbay, the hidden valley of Urgyen Rinpoche. Ura Makrong, as the term suggests, is the main village. The village is also known as Dozhi, or four sections, as Ura village is composed of four administrative divisions through which it is traditionally organized and run. A thriving community, the village produced leading religious figures, statesmen, scholars and artists throughout Bhutan’s history.
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages. Ancient India enjoyed religious freedom and encourages the path of Dharma, a concept common to Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!). Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
