Happy Losar

Year of the Tiger

Losar Tashi Delek!

I wish all our readers happiness, success and prosperity in the Year of the Iron Male Tiger.

The banner and the picture accompanying this greeting features the Sokpo Tag Thred (The Mongol leading the Tiger). Lam Kesang, my friend, tells me that the combination of the Mongol, Tree and Tiger is one of the representations of Rigsum Goenpo (The Lords of the three Families) with the Mongol symbolizing Jampelyang (Manjushri), the Tree Chenrezig (Avalokiteshvara), and the Tiger Chana Dorji (Vajrapani).

Murals of Sokpo Tag Thred can be found on the entrance walls of some dzongs to protect their relics against external threats.
