His Majesty to Wed Jetsun Pema in October this Year.

These days the weather is bitterly hot out here. Not having to go to attend the lectures for some reasons, I was just lying over the carpet on the floor beneath the spinning fan to keep sweats away. By then it was almost 11 am in the morning so, lying on the floor further mean drowning into a deep slumber of dreams, so in order to escape it, I just logged into my facebook account. Well as usual, there is no notification except few from Blogyul. I just went through the quotes and inspiring stories to ponder over out there on our group of Bhutanese Bloggers and writers. Mean while more notifications came on Blogyul and this time it was surprising news.

When I heard the joyous news, His Majesty’s announcement to the nation about the Royal wedding, I was overwhelmed with ecstasy and jubilation.  We the nation celebrated His majesty’s 31st birthday a couple of months ago and at this age a normal Bhutanese man would be fathering three or at least two. Therefore, it’s a right time, that his majesty has finally decided to marry this October.

When I read the name of royal bride, Jetsun Pema, the only image my inner eye could conceive was the image of  Goddess White Tara, or commonly known as Jetsun Dolma, who is also known for compassion, long life, healing and serenity; also known as The Wish-fulfilling Wheel. Latter seeing the photo of His Majesty with Future Queen, Azhi Jetsun Pema, she is gloriously beautiful and is a perfect embodiment of Jetsun Dolma.  The divine king, so compassionate and selfless, commonly known as Peoples King, His Majesty Jigme Khesar Namgyal Wangchuck and Royal bride Jetsun Pema makes the perfect couple ever. 

I am overwhelmed with joy and we Bhutanese are overwhelmed. We pray for their good health and long life, until then eagerly awaits the auspicious day of October 2011, to solemnly witness the royal wedding, with joy in heart, and prayer on lips, and pride in soul for having born in the land of Palden Drukpa. May peace and prosperity prevail until eternity.
