Wasn't this story written about in the last section of your book IN SEARCH
OF THE MASTERS and isn't it some unfortunate mistake with a small pox
vaccine that kills the Panchen Lama and then the Sengchen Tulku is executed
for allowing foreigners to enter the country and initiate trade? In the
meantime though important literary works did leave the country with the traders.

Do you write the story again in THE MASTERS REVEALED?
