Buelwa Offering

Posted on :21 February 2018

In celebration of His Majesty’s Birthday, the National Council Members led by the Chairperson offered the customary buelwa at the on-going Goenwang Drubchen at Punakha Dzong today along with Zhung Dratshang, Dzongkhag Administration, students and the people,

The buelwa was traditionally offered both during Lhamoi Drubchen at Thimphu and Goenwang Drubchen at Punakha to thank the Dratshang for propitiating our guardian deities. This buelwa is not the same as the one offered during Chunyipai Losar.

The tradition has been discontinued but the National Council has revived it five years ago. Representing the people of twenty Dzongkhag, we thank the Zhung Dratshang for conducting the drubchen, which is a national kurim. 

At Thimphu, the buelwa is offered the moment Lhamo Tsomo appears to perform the dance. Likewise, the buelwa at Punakha is offered the moment Legoen Jarog Dongchen appears to perform the dance.

We were extremely fortunate today at the auspicious coincidence of His Majesty’s Birthday with the performance of the very sacred Legoen Ami kuncham.
