"This is probably the only picture taken of the young Panchan Lama who I met in Lanchow in Kansu in northwest China. He is being greeted here by Ma Hang-Kuei, governor of Ningsha province who was visiting Lanchow at the time. Less than a week after I saw him he was captured by Communist police and taken back to Beijing where he spent several years being re-educated, before he was sent to a post in western Tibet, where he died in 1989" Source: ‘Rainbow Around the Moon’ by Malcolm Rosholt, page 181.
