His Majesty the King has called on all Thais to extend compassion to others as a way to lead a happy life, in the royal New Year's greeting card released by the palace yesterday.
The New Year's card features His Majesty the King in casual dress flanked by his favourite royal pet dogs, Khun Thongdaeng and Khun Mali. It contains a poem bearing a royal message, and a royal blessing to the King's subjects.
The card is a royal tradition which the King has extended to Thais for the past several years. In his poem, His Majesty the King said compassion is a virtue which can bring happiness to all. The gratitude expressed to those who extend their compassion will add to ties of care and friendship between people, His Majesty the King said.
