To commemorate the 12th Coronation Anniversary of His Majesty Druk Gyalpo Jigme Khesar Namgyal Wangchuck, Samtse College of Education conducted a special prayer ceremony from 7.30AM until 9.00AM in the Rig-sum Goenpo (Prayer) Hall for the continued good health and long life of our beloved His Majesty.
The ceremony was attended by a select group of students and some teaching and administrative staff based on the accommodation capacity of the prayer hall. The programme commenced with the offering of butter lamps, followed by series of prayers and recitation of Zhabten. The ceremony concluded with suja and shamdrey.
Ms. Januka Dhungyel, a B.Ed final year said, “I personally feel blessed and proud to attend the prayer because today is the 12th coronation day of His Majesty. Besides it is the first day of the November month, a fresh month. At least we had an opportunity to pay our gratitude towards our King simply by offering butter lamps and prayers. Long Live His Majesty the King!”
Similarly, Ms. Deki Choden, a first year student shared, ”1st November is the Coronation Day of His Majesty the Fifth King, which is a very auspicious day for all the Bhutanese. Today on such a great day, I felt so privileged to have such an opportunity to attend a special morning prayer. I offer my heartfelt gratitude and best wishes to our benevolent King. Long live our King!”
