Salut mes amis !
The Karma Kagyu sect collaborated with the United Front Work Department to make this happen.
“…in 1992, China helped select the seven-year-old Ogyen Trinley Dorje as the 17th Karmapa, installing him at Tibet’s Tsurphu monastery – the Karmapas’ ancestral abode, which was almost destroyed during the cultural revolution. He became the first reincarnated ‘living Buddha’ to be recognised and ratified by Communist China.”
There is no denying that this happened.
