Tibetans demand China reveal fate of boy taken away in 1995

Tibetans demand China reveal fate of boy taken away in 1995”

He stressed that different religious groups have suffered severe repression and discrimination in China and that the USA government would continue to advocate for religious freedom around the world.

The Dalai Lama, who lives in exile in India and enjoys a wide global following, on May 14, 1995, identified Gedhun Choekyi Nyima as the reincarnation of the Panchen Lama, the second most senior figure in Tibetan Buddhism's largest school. "But China's persecution of the Panchen Lama is not unusual", Pompeo said.

In a statement, Pompeo pointed out that the USA remained deeply concerned about the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) attempt to eradicate the religious, linguistic, and cultural identity of Tibetans.

He called on the Chinese government to immediately make public the Panchen Lama's whereabouts and to uphold its own constitution and worldwide commitments to promote religious freedom for all persons.

Earlier this year, the US House of Representatives had unanimously passed the Tibetan Policy and Support Act (TPSA) to strengthen policy in support of Tibet, a move that was reciprocated as "encouraging and empowering" by the representatives of the Himalayan Buddhist region that has been under the control of China since several decades.

The boy was taken into custody three days later and has not been seen since, with human rights groups calling him the world's youngest political prisoner.

Drawing from the teachings of Buddhist scholar, Nagarjuna, in his text "Precious Garland", the Dalai Lama stated that the analytical and scientific approach of the Nalanda tradition, forming the base for Tibetan Buddhism, was precise in the study of the workings of the human mind.

The Chinese government, which is officially atheist, had named another boy, Gyaltsen Norbu, as the Panchen Lama.

However, the Tibetan Parliament in India, known as the Kashag, continues to recognize Nyima as the sole legitimate holder of his title.

The Dalai Lama, who fled into exile following an abortive uprising against Chinese rule in 1959, named the original Panchen, Gedhun Choekyi Nyima, with the help of Tibetan lamas trained in reading portents and signs.

Traditionally, the Panchen Lama has served as teacher and aide to the Dalai Lama, Tibetan Buddhism's highest leader who is now 84 and accused by Beijing of seeking independence for Tibet.

The Dalai Lama observed how materialistic development with its comfort and ease has brought along the human ignorance towards inner peace, so much that even materially successful people feel discontent.

The 10th Panchen Lama was imprisoned by China and died under what some consider suspicious circumstances in 1989 after making speeches calling for greater religious and social freedoms for Tibetans.
