Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.

The random article for Monday, 10 June 2024 is Bhrikuti.

Bhrikuti Devi (Sanskrit: भृकुटी, known to Tibetans as Bal-mo-bza' Khri-btsun, Bhelsa Tritsun ("Besa" Nepal lit. 'Nepali consort'), or simply, Khri bTsun (lit. 'royal lady') was a princess of the Licchavi kingdom in Nepal. In c.622 Bhrikuti became the first wife and queen of the king of Tibet, Songtsen Gampo (c.605–650 CE). Bhrikuti was seen as an incarnation of Green Tara, and is credited for bringing Buddhism to Tibet, together with the Jowo Mikyo Dorje statue for which the Jokhang Temple in Lhasa was built.

This recording reflects the Wikipedia text as of 00:15 UTC on Monday, 10 June 2024.
