We, the Chhode Tashi Lhunpo Cultural Society and Central Association for His Holiness the Panchen Lama on behalf of all the Tibetan people with great humility wish happiness and prosperity to 11th Panchen Lama His Holiness Tenzin Gendun Yeshi Thinley Phuntsok Pal Sangpo, the emanation of Amitabha, on the occasion of His 19th Birthday.
Throughout the history of Tibet, the lineages of His Holiness Panchen Lama together with the lineages of His Holiness the Dalai Lama have made an unparalleled contribution in both the spiritual and temporal field towards the welfare and betterment of Tibetan people. In particular the 10th Panchen Lama made the greatest sacrifice of his precious life for the revival of Buddhism and welfare of the Tibetan people inside Tibet. Therefore, even today, almost 20 years since his death, when Tibetans suffer, the 10th Panchen Lama is still remembered with great affection. All Tibetans whether in exile or inside Tibet will persist in their peaceful demands for the release of the 11th Panchen Lama, Gedun Choekyi Nyima, recognized by His Holiness the Dalai Lama, even if their own precious lives have to be sacrificed.
