We launched the series ‘Luminous Words’, as a tribute to His Majesty The King, in November last year.
His Majesty’s words inspire us everyday, to do better for ourselves, our families, communities, and the nation. From the treasured collection of His Majesty’s Addresses, we bring you the second instalment of this series– a reinterpretation in illustrations of a selection of His Majesty’s luminous words.
Produced by the Royal Office for Media in partnership with the talented folks at Thimphu Comics.
The Light of Education
Excerpt from the Royal Address delivered at the 3rd Convocation of the Royal University of Bhutan, Paro, in 2009.
“When the sun sets every evening, we go to sleep in the comfort that it will rise in the morning and things will be the same. Do not however let the light of education ever go out. For if it should become dark, even for a moment, we will find that generations of our children will suffer its effects and the light on a bright future for our nation will take decades to shine again.”

Ugen P. says
So very true and so very well said by our King. Education, and quality education at that, will make our nation great. There is no two ways about it. The government and the society at large will have to strive for it in every way they can.
