Dharamshala: The Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) mourns the demise of Mr Tamdin Dorje Tuladhar, former coordinator for Tibetans in Nepal who passed away on Tuesday in Kathmandu, Nepal at the age of 75.
The CTA expresses its heartfelt condolences to the bereaved family and friends of Mr Tamdin Dorje and sends prayers for his smooth and swift rebirth.
Born in Lhasa, Tibet on March 3, 1946, Mr Tamdin Dorje escaped to India following the Chinese invasion promising his mother Dolma Yangzom that he would only return to Tibet with H.H the Dalai Lama. He achieved his mother’s wish by serving the Tibetan cause and dedicating work in many capacities at Tibetan Freedom Movement Association, Markham Association, local Tibetan Assembly and others.
Mr Tamdin was also the executive member of the Human Rights Organization in Nepal (HURON) from 2000 to 2002. In 2012, he was appointed as the Coordinator of Tibetan Refugee Welfare Office, Kathmandu, Nepal from July 1, 2012, and served for 5 years until June 2017. He was also a successful entrepreneur and shared a passion for tourism and Tibetan arts and antiques.
Mr Tamdin Dorje Tuladhar is survived by his wife, a daughter and a son.
