    U+0F09 BSKUR YIG MGO is used on ordinary or casual correspondence and at the
    start of lists.

    U+0F09 which was erroneously named BKA-SHOG YIG MGO (should have been ZHU-YIG
    GO RGYAN), is used for writing respectfully to a senior particularly when
    requesting something. e.g when writing to a government officer or minister
    requesting a licence or permit, when petitioning the court and so on.
