Kunga Norbu Speaks About Continuing Brother’s Legacy

The nephew of the Dalai Lama, Kunga Norbu, spoke to the media Tuesday for the first time since his brother’s Jigme’s death last week.

Kunga Norbu, along with Jigme’s oldest sons Tenzin and Jensen, addressed the aftermath of his brother’s death while walking for Tibetan rights in Florida last week.

“Our family has received a tremendous amount of compassion and support from the community and people from all over the world and we want to take this opportunity to thank each and every one for their love and goodwill,” said Kunga Norbu.

But Kunga says his brother’s passion for Tibetan rights will only be transferred to Jigme’s sons, not extinguished.

“This tragedy will not stop our determination to continue my father’s and my brother’s dream,” said Norbu. “My nephews and I will continue to keep the cause alive.  Jigme’s tragic death will not end our passion.  His sons will continue our family legacy.”

The Norbu family will travel to Florida to complete Jigme’s walk Wednesday through Saturday.  A public memorial service for Jigme is scheduled for March 1st from 6 to 8 P.M. at Bloomington City Hall.
