Rinpoche was an emotional sight to been seen, people repeating it with choked voice and moistened eyes. The oath was translated into Tibetan/Ladakhi language. That is why emotion were oozing from everybody's heart.

Every Ladakhi was saluting and paying great tribute to the Tibetans inside Tibet who are facing the harsh and inhuman atrocities in the hands of communist regime of China, and their hope and support in the leadership of His Holiness the Dalai Lama is unparallel.

HIMCAT members were particularly happy for the ITSN for its consideration in bringing the torch, on its last leg in India, to Ladakh on the border of occupied Tibet. They are enthusiastic and optimistic that one day they will carry the same torch into a Free Tibet starting the torch journey from Ladakh.

Around 2500 Tibetans and ladakhis took part in the Freedom Torch relay.
