She called for the Dalai Lama's return to Tibet and for religious freedom for about 10 minutes while burning. She died at the Sumdo bridge, located below her nunnary, Mame Dechen Chokorling Nunnery.
In the painful photo of her body burned down in the grass area, a few figures of nuns far coming to her can be seen. They must have been rushing with their hearts aching with sadness.
Police demanded to give her body to them, but nuns rejected and it is said that Tenzin Wangmo's body was cremated in the evening of October.
