Taklung Thangpa | T. stag lung thang pa bkra shis dpal | (1142-1210)

When the [disciple of Phagmo Drugpa] Lord Taklung Thangpa was on the point of death, he was requested to eat some soup with fat in it, as this would cure his disease.
"Throughout my life," he replied, "I have been able to keep the precepts. Why should I break them now that I am on the point of death?"
He ignored his doctor's advice and so passed away.
