Puppet Panchen in Tibet
The Chinese are betting on the puppet Panchen Lama to one day 'replace' the Dalai Lama. He has been received as a VVIP (with red carpet) by the bosses of the Party lead by the infamous Zhang Qingli who once said that the Dalai Lama is a wolf in monk's robe.
The Party-nominated Panchen Lama also visited Yumbulhakang, the Palace of the First Kings of Tibet and the monastery of Reting, founded by Atisha, the great Bengali Pandit. It is from Reting that the Kadampa lineage of Tibetan Buddhist originated .
The Lama met the young Reting Rinpoche who in his previous life has been violently anti-Dalai Lama. The only thing that the Chinese can't do is to buy the love of the Tibetan People for someone they consider as a stooge of the Party. Resentment is bound to grow.
