His Majesty The King began a Royal Tour of the southern parts of the country yesterday. His Majesty granted audience to the de-suups training in the 46th batch at Tencholing, and the Tsirang Covid-19 Task Force.

Before the tour, His Majesty granted blessings for Dasain Tika at the Lingkana Palace. The Tika, imbued with Royal Blessings, have been sent to all dzongkhags, for the people across the country. On Dasain, Hindu families will exchange the tika, which carries the blessings and protection of elders for their family.

It is tradition for His Majesty to bless the Dasain Tika, which when granted to the people, symbolises the binding together of the nation as members of a single family.
