His Majesty granted Dasain Tika to representatives of the Hindu community of Gelephu at the Shivalaya Mandir in Gelephu, yesterday.
Dasain Tika granted by elders and parents convey special blessings and protection. Dasain marks the victory of the Dharma King Rama, who was an emanation of Vishnu, over the demon Ravana- a victory of good over evil. Dasain tika from His Majesty carries special significance as His Majesty is regarded as an emanation of Vishnu for those celebrating Dasain.
