(Tenzin Wangden Andrugtsang)
Andrugtsang family for several generations has been acknowledged for its
immense reverence and deep devotion to the Dharma. Every Tibetan knows the
almost legendary story of how the late Gonpo Tashi sacrificed his wealth
and life for the Dharma and the national freedom of Tibet.
Despite the insuperable and awesome odds that China posed, Gonpo Tashi was
undaunted; with inflexible determination and conviction, he struggled for
aims that he felt were noble and just until his unfortunate, premature death.
The publication of his memoirs is thus an event I welcome very much.
I pray that the forces of his meritorious deeds - his noble act of sincerely
and preservingly struggling for the Dharma, the nation and the people of
Tibet allow him to reach the highest level of attainment. "
