A year from now, he left his family and children in Israel and led a peace march from Dharamsala to Tibet.

This year again, on the occasion of Tibetan National Uprising day, he is determined to do a peace march from Dharamsala to Tibet and is calling on the fellow Tibetans to join him for this endeavor. He says the aim of his peace march to Tibet is to launch the struggle right inside Tibet itself.
