Gangtok: November 2
A meeting of Sikkim Bhutia Lepcha Apex Committee (SIBLAC) was held today to condole the sudden demise of Venerable Ajho Bongthing Samdub Taso on Sunday as informed by the association in a press release.
Condoling the death, the Convener Tseten Tashi Bhutia said that on his death people must adhere to the late Ajho Bongthing’s life long service and on the need to dedicatedly propitiate and worship our eternal Guardian Deity Khangchen Dzonga for the welfare of Bayul Dremo Dzong. Ajho Bongthing was in-fact an institution in himself who would hold the thousands-years-old family-tradition as an accessible bridge with the Guardian Deity Khangchen Dzonga.
The SIBLAC declared an official mourning of seven days in the honour of the late Venerable Ajho Bongthing Samdub Taso, added the release.
