Tsering Ngodup Khando works for the Tibetan refugee center in Dharamsala. During his free time he paints Tulku Tenzin Delek's image with a message reading, Sentenced to Die - You can save my life - on T-shirts, bags, umbrellas, bikes and the walls of buildings in Dharamsala. He has been doing these paintings free of charge for tourists coming to Dharamsala with the hope that the message will be taken back to their various countries and more people will learn of Tenzin Delek's situation and be moved to act on his behalf.
