CORONA-TION WEEK, AN ENVIRONMENT WEEK
2nd June 2020: Social Forestry Day to commemorate the Coronation of our beloved King HM Jigme Singye Wangchuck who is the first ‘Champion of the Earth’ award in 2005 instituted by UNEP.
4th June 2020: Birthday of our Her Majesty The Gyaltsuen, the patron of environment preservation in Bhutan.
5th June 2020: World Environment Day (WED) is one of the biggest events celebrated in the world every year; it is supposed to be the "People's Day" to do something to take care of the earth and the environment. We are not doing but polluting. Thanks to the CORONA pandemic lockdown, the earth got time to heal a bit, the sky is clearer, and the air cleaner.
I am happy that Lord Buddha joined us this year on WED to teach us mindfulness - to be mindful of our actions on the world. CORONA would have never come if we did not harm other living creatures.
I feel we should observe a CORONA-TION week each year - a CORONA pandemic lockdown on earth each year. For 2020 we did our part during the CORONA-TION WEEK, AN ENVIRONMENT WEEK
Happy CORONA-TION Weekend.
