There were four speakers after him, who spoke about Panchen Rinpoche. The 10th Panchen Rinpoche is a true martyrs and a great reformist like Gandhiji. He had worked so hard in preserving Tibetan language and speaking vehemently against the Chinese atricity for the Tibetans, which ultimately cost his life.  Gedun Choekyi Nyima was recognized by His Holiness the Dalai lama as the reincarnation of 10th Panchen Lama. Soon after, the Chinese kidnapped the young 11th Panchen Lama. Today he is 24 years old and no one knows where he is. He has become the world’s youngest political prisoner.
