Miss Tibet 2006 Tsering Chungtak passes away

Miss Tibet 2006 Tsering Chungtak


With a heavy heart, I am announcing the sudden demise of Miss Tibet 2006 Tsering Chungtak. She died of a heart attack in Delhi in the evening of 21 July. She was 30 years old.

She had to stop her PhD degree midway due to health issues. She was working as a research scholar with Ayur Gyan Nyas, an organisation creating curriculum on secular ethics for students from class one to twelve — one of the Dalai Lama’s commitments to make Secular Ethics widely available to younger generations in schools, colleges, and universities across the world.

I am truly sorry for the loss of a talented and intelligent young Tibetan woman. She will be missed and she will never be forgotten.

I am sending my condolences to the bereaved family and friends, and prayers to overcome the pain. I request friends and fans to say as much as possible Om muni muni maha muniye swaha and Om mani paymay hoong _()_

Tsering Chungtak won the Miss Tibet 2006 crown. She had participated in Miss Earth Pageant the same year. She went to Malaysia for Miss Tourism Pageant but had to withdraw after Chinese government put pressure on the organisers asking them to sash Chungtak with a “Miss Tibet-China”.

Chungtak was among the four Miss Tibets carrying the Tibetan Olympics banner during the biggest Tibetan sporting event in 2008. She went to Taiwan to lead the Tibetan Olympics torch rally in Taipei.
