"Eleventh Panchen Lama" visits Shanxi

11th Pancen Lama of TibetHow co-incidental.

Almost 9 years to the day that the Chinese government kidnapped the Dalai Lama selected 11th Panchen Lama, six year old Gedhun Choekyi Nyima , (seen on left) up pops this Xinhua news item on a visit by the Chinese "pretender" Panchen Lama to Shanxi Province.

Bainqen Erdini Qoigyijabu, the so called "Eleventh Panchen Lama" was selected by the Government two weeks after the disappearance of the real Panchen Lama who was supposedly taken into custody by the Chinese for his "own protection". To this day, nine years later, he has not been seen or heard of. There have been several reports that in fact he is dead.

The article quotes that Bainqen Erdini Qoigyijabu

called on religious believers to carry on the fine tradition of loving the motherland and religion and safeguard national unity.

Somehow I do not think your average Tibetan would be caught voluntarily uttering such affirmations.
