We celebrated a momentous April, with a Tsechu at Punakha on Zhabdrung Kuchoe, to mark 400 years since Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyel came to Bhutan. On the same day, the Naming Ceremony for His Royal Highness The Gyalsey was held at the Punakha Dzong, with blessings from the sacred Machen of Zhabdrung.
His Royal Highness The Gyalsey has been named Jigme Namgyel Wangchuck.
Jigme means fearless, and invokes the strength to confront any challenges that the future may present, without fear or hesitation, when the time comes for the Gyalsey to serve his country.
Namgyel means victorious in all directions and victory over all obstacles. It is a name taken from the revered Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyel, who enabled the Dharma to flourish in all directions as prophesied by Guru Rinpoche.
Wangchuck, which connotes a person born with authority and majestic qualities, is inherited from the Wangchuck dynasty, of our hereditary Monarchy.
With this special Kupar of our Prince, His Royal Highness Gyalsey Jigme Namgyel Wangchuck, we welcome May of abundant blossoms and happiness.
