Tashi Lhunpo Monastery Calls on China to Release Panchen Lama

  • VOA Tibetan

Tashi Lhunpo Monastery, the base monastery of the Panchen Lama, celebrated his 22nd birthday Monday morning. The monastery called on China to release Panchen Lama and other political prisoners including Jatrel Rinpoche, who played a key role in finding the reincarnation of the 10th Panchen Lama.

Gedun Chokyi Nyima, 22, has disappeared in May of 1995 soon after the Dalai Lama recognized him as the reincarnation of the 10th Panchen Lama. China has not given any access to him and his parents ever since.
