Decided to give this thread a "bump" to the top since tomorrow (May 17th) is the 10 year anniversary of the kidnapping and imprisonment of the panchan Lama and his entire family.

So far 2412 butter lamps from 62 countries have been lit. You can also lite a butter lamp to show support for this poor child.

There will also be "Take part in the Global Vigil for Tibet's Panchen Lama being held in 64 locations in 21 countries around the world on May 17, 2005 - the 10th anniversary of the Panchen Lama's disappearance."

You can lite a Virtual butter lamp for him at this link:

On the same page you can also click the link for "vigils" to see if you live in one of the 64 locations. And the banner on the top explains a little more about his plight.

The poor boy... I hate to break it to you people, but you know that he and his family are not likely ever to be heard from again. Prolonged "government-organized disappearances" usually only mean one thing in China.

I lit a lamp nevertheless...
