Larung Gar (artikel)

2016-10-06 21:56 #0 av: Fredrik1

"OCT 5, 2016 — RFA: Speaking on Sept. 23, monastic officials at Larung Gar told nuns threatened with eviction that anyone registering their names for removal by Sept. 28 would be transferred to monastic institutions elsewhere in Serthar or in Sichuan's Nyagrong (Xinlong), Dege (Dege), or Draggo (Luhuo) counties, and that senior teachers would be sent there to look after them.

Anyone not volunteering for transfer would be understood to be at risk of forced removal by Chinese authorities, with no guarantee they would be permitted to resume their studies, monastic officials said.

That deadline has now passed, with no information immediately available regarding the number of those volunteering for removal.

However, at least 100 Larung Gar monks and nuns who had come originally from the Tibetan regional capital Lhasa or elsewhere in the Tibet Autonomous Region (TAR) were loaded onto buses on Sept. 29 and sent away, sources said."

OCT 7, 2016 — RFA: Hundreds of Chinese officials have descended on Sichuan’s Larung Gar Buddhist Institute in recent days to question resident monks and nuns about their residency status in order to target them for removal, sources in the region say.

The officials, many of them coming from Tibetan-populated areas outside Sichuan, are now busily going door-to-door collecting information, a resident of the area told RFA’s Tibetan Service this week.

“Recently, over 300 government officials from different provinces, prefectures, and counties arrived at Larung Gar,” RFA’s source said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

“They are gathering names and information regarding the hometowns and monasteries of the monks and nuns, and are recording all of this [to select individuals for eviction],” the source said.

“At the request of the senior teachers and abbots of the Institute, the monks and nuns are cooperating with these investigations without displaying anger or irritation,” he said.

Many thousands of Tibetans and Han Chinese study at the Larung Gar complex, which was founded in 1980 by the late religious teacher Khenpo Jigme Phuntsok and is one of the world’s largest and most important centers for the study of Tibetan Buddhism.

The order now to reduce the number of Larung Gar’s residents by about half to a maximum level of 5,000 by Sept. 30 next year “comes from higher authorities,” with China’s president Xi Jinping taking a personal interest in the matter, sources told RFA in earlier reports.

Dwellings destroyed

Chinese work crews meanwhile continue to demolish structures at the sprawling religious complex in Sichuan’s Serthar (in Chinese, Seda) county, with 550 houses torn down between July 20 and Sept. 23, a source at Larung Gar with close knowledge of the situation said.

Authorities have targeted a total of 1,000 monastic dwellings for destruction by the end of this year alone, sources say.

“The list of monks and nuns to be removed from Larung Gar this year must be reported to senior officials by Oct. 30,” RFA’s source said.

Rights groups have slammed the government-ordered destruction at Larung Gar, with New York-based Human Rights Watch (HRW) saying that Beijing should allow the Tibetan people to decide for themselves how best to practice their religion.

“If authorities somehow believe that the Larung Gar facilities are overcrowded, the answer is simple,” HRW China director Sophie Richardson said in a statement in June, when the plan to destroy large sections of the complex was first announced.

“Allow Tibetans and other Buddhists to build more monasteries.”

"UPDATE: 5 October 2016 - Free Tibet has learned that, under pressure from China, the authorities at Larung Gar have asked 2,000 nuns to leave the site voluntarily. Nuns who did not agree to leave were at risk of being forcibly removed. The deadline for the 2,000 departures was 28 September. It is unclear at this stage whether those departures have taken place."

"Serta Larung, the largest Buddhist settlement in Tibet half destroyed by Chinese government. China said it's to bring the modernisation there, but watch what really happens there."
