Ignoring Dalai Lama's Choice, China Installs Cleric in Tibet
By SETH FAISON
Published: November 30, 1995


Battling the Dalai Lama for the soul of Tibet, the Chinese authorities orchestrated an elaborate ceremony there today to choose a 6-year-old boy as the officially approved reincarnation of the Panchen Lama, Tibet's second most important religious figure.

Conducted at dawn in the Johkang Temple in Lhasa, Tibet's capital, the ceremony was a bizarre mixture of ancient Tibetan ritual and modern Communist Party protocol. Parts were broadcast on Chinese state television.

In the dark, icon-laden temple, an elderly monk rubbed the lips of a sacred golden urn in a circular motion before reaching inside to select an ivory tile bearing the boy's name -- Gyaincain Norbu -- from three possible choices. He was proclaimed the 11th Panchen Lama.

But that only came after a senior Chinese official, looking out of place in a suit and tie among elderly lamas in blood-red robes and arching yellow hats, read a stern address to the assembled monks to remind them that religious decisions are only valid if approved by the Government.
