Born in 1934, Kelsang Chodron was once a serf of a local manor. As both her parents served as serfs in the manor, the same misfortune befell her ever since she was born. Suffering from endless work and hunger day and night, Kelsang chose to escape from the place of misery once, along with two other girls who shared the same sufferings with her. Unfortunately, their efforts were in vain. They were caught back to the manor, ending with severe punishment. "I was badly beaten up with unbearable pain," Kelsang Chodron recalled.

After the democratic reform in 1959, life of Kelsang Chodron has totally changed. She and her husband gave birth to four children. At present, she lives happily with her grandson and granddaughter-in-law at a two-story house. "Hunger has completely gone out of my life now," said Kelsang Chodron.
