This has been a truly significant year for the people of Bhutan.
We entered 2016 having celebrated the 60th Birth Anniversary of His Majesty the Fourth Druk Gyalpo – filled with a sense of history and appreciation of our culture and heritage. The year also celebrated the birth year of Guru Rinpoche and the 400th anniversary of Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyel’s arrival in Druk Yul. 2016 has further reinforced our sense of belonging and pride in our unique and rich cultural heritage. We are united in our joy as we welcomed the Prince of Bhutan, and even as we look to the past, we are filled with a new sense of determination and responsibility for the future that awaits us.
As this momentous year comes to a close, we mark another occasion of historical importance – the completion of the tenth year of His Majesty’s reign. These ten years have seen the transition of our country into a democratic system in a manner that is exceptional in the world. They shall be remembered in the future as a time of extraordinary and exemplary leadership, when the foundations for a strong democracy were built.
His Majesty The King embodies our identity and unity, and fills us with optimism and purpose for the future of our country.
For our December calendar, we commemorate His Majesty’s 10th year of reign with this wonderful photograph of our King, Queen, and Gyalsey. May such happiness and peace forever prevail in Bhutan.
