Bhutan National Anthem

Original Bhutanese Lyrics

Druk tsendhen
Druk tsendhen koipi gyelkhap na
Loog ye ki tenpa chongwai gyon
Pel mewang ngadhak rinpo chhe
Ku jurmey tenching chhap tsid pel
Chho sangye ten pa goong dho gyel
Bang che kyed nyima shar warr sho.

English Translation

The Thunder Dragon Kingdom
In the Thunder Dragon Kingdom adorned with sandalwood
The protector who guards the teachings of the dual system
He, the precious and glorious ruler, causes dominion to spread
While his unchanging person abides in consistency
As the doctrine of the Lord Buddha flourishes
May the sun and peace of happiness shine on the people!
