His Majesty The King grants Dashain Tika to representatives of the Hindu Community of Bhutan


Oct 27, 2020

His Majesty The King granted Dashain Tika to representatives of the Hindu Community of Bhutan at the Devi Panchayan Mandir in Thimphu, yesterday. Tika imbued with Royal blessings have been sent to other dzongkhags for the people across the country. His Majesty offered prayers to the goddess Durga at the Mandir.

Dashain is the most important festival for the Hindu community in Bhutan. On this day, families come together to receive Tika from the head of the family, as a symbol of their blessings and protection. It celebrates the Dharma King Rama’s victory over evil, by invoking the blessings of goddess Durga. Hindus believe that His Majesty, as the Dharma King, is an embodiment of Vishnu, as was King Rama.
