Bhutan's Dragon King crowns a bride

Postby Kim OHara » Thu Oct 13, 2011 8:13 am

Bhutan's hugely popular king has married a 21-year-old student in a colourful ceremony showcasing the rich Buddhist culture of one of the world's most remote and insular countries.
Amid clouds of incense and chanting monks, the 31-year-old King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck crowned his queen at the end of a series of rituals in the 17th-century fortified monastery chosen for the occasion.

Happy Days!
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Yes, I imagine that the Gross National Happiness Index has experienced a bit of a spike!

Is she Thai? I would have thought she would have to be a Bhutanese babe!
Yes, I do love the officiating monk. I want reading glasses like his and his hat - fabulous!
