Druk tsendhen ("The Thunder Dragon Kinrick") is the naitional anthem o Bhutan.

Adoptit in 1953, the muisic is bi Aku Tongmi an the wirds are bi Dasho Gyaldun Thinley. Tongmi wis educatit in Indie an wis recently appointit leader o the military brass baund when the need for an anthem rose at the occasion o a state visit frae prime meenister Nehru o Indie. His oreeginal score wis inspired bi the Indian an British anthems, as well as the Bhutanese fowk tune Thri nyampa med pa pemai thri ("The Unchynging Lotus Throne"). The melody haes twice unnergane chynges bi Mr Tongmi's successors as baund leaders.

The oreeginal leerics wur 12 lines, but wis shortened tae the present 6 lines version in 1964 bi a secretary tae the keeng. Baith versions are quotit in the beuk at link #1.

As the anthem is inspired bi a fowk tune, there is a choreography tae it as well, oreeginally directit bi Mr. Tongmi.

In the Thunder Dragon Kinrick, whaur cypresses grow
Refuge o the glorious monastic an ceevil traditions,
The Keeng o Druk, precious sovereign,
His being is eternal, his reign prosperous
The enlichtenment teachins thrive an flourish
May the fowk shine like the sun o peace an happiness!
