It's Tibetan or Dzongkha. "བངེ་བ" (bange ba)

I can't speak Tibetan, though I tried to learn it. So I can't help with the meaning. But I'm sure it's written in the Tibetan script.

That doesn't even look like a real Tibetan word. Normally in Phags-pa script, the raised dot divides syllables. So either the vowel mark is on the wrong consonant or the word should be divided into three syllables rather than two.

I think it's supposed to be བདེ་བ.
