Takster Rinpoche will be in my memory forever. I am honored to have known this generous, intelligent, and humorous man. I can still remember clearly my own wedding ceremony led by Takster Rinpoche and Drupon Samten. These respected teachers made this day—twenty years ago this month—unique for me, my husband, and our families. I also cherish my discussions with Rinpoche about the fate of Tibet.
I wish his family well.

An influential and committed voice for Rangzen passes away, a great loss, however Takster Rinpoche's dedication, pariotism and active support for Tibet's independence will be long remembered. He kept alight the torch for others to follow.

I met Taktser Rinpoche several times. I've also read his book on Tibet. I remember him vividly when he spoke at one of the first Tibetan Independence Walks in NYC.

Taktser Rinpoche was an ardent believer in Tibetan freedom & human rights. He didn't just believe in rangzen, he dedicated his life to regaining Tibet's independence. He was a gracious human being and a genuine inspiration to me to work hard for Tibet's freedom.

He will be missed and mourned by all Tibetans and friends of Tibet.
