In 1959, Lobsang gave up his life as a monk in Chamdo, Tibet to help protect the Dalai Lama as he fled to India. For years he lived in the mountains of Nepal fighting for Tibet's freedom. His life was extremely hard; he was shot, half-starved and put in prison. For Lobsang, it was all worth it "I am very pleased His Holiness is safely received in India. We feel, despite all our other problems, because he is safe it makes it worthwhile". Lobsang is now 89 and lives in Jampaling settlement, Nepal with his wife. They have no children and no one to help support them in their old age if they become ill.
