Blissful land of the thunder dragon,
Blessed by the lotus born,
Unified by Pelden Drukpa Rinpoche,
Rule by the Boddhisattav kings,
Gross national happiness is a gift to His citizens.

As a young crown prince,
On the auspicious coronation day
Promised not to serve as king,
But as a son and friend,
Boddhisattav down to earth.

Chosen by almighty as king of the people,
Never order and command His people in difficult times,
He managed to tackle everything,
Leaving behind all happiness to serve His people,
Even at the cost of his life.

Source of happiness are our monarch,
Source of peacetime are our monarch,
Source of well-being are our monarch,
Source of love are our monarch.
