Now, 26-year-old Panchen Lama is the deputy chairman of the Chinese Buddhist Association. However, the Dalai Lama's institution disapproves and firmly opposes it. As for the devotees who follow the Gelug school of Tibetan religion, there are places like Mongolia, Bhutan, in China-Inner Mongolia, Tibet; in Russia-Kalmyk, Buriat, Tuva,; in India-Ladakh,; in Nepal-Shirva. None of them allow New Panchen Lama.
Last year, the Embassy of China in Mongolia met with some leaders of the Buddhist community in Mongolia. It proposed cooperation and exchange between the religious organizations of the two countries through cultural exchanges. At the invitation of the Chinese side, some representatives of the Mongolian religion visited the Panchen Lama during their visit to Beijing. However, none of the Gandan Monastery representatives, the main temple in Mongolia, participated in the event.
