DHARAMSHALA, Feb. 11: Two high ranking monks from Chongri Monastery in Drango County, Kardze in Sichuan Province, have been detained by Chinese authorities following a mass prayer by Tibetans for recovery of the exiled Tibetan leader the Dalai Lama who is currently undergoing a “preventive prostrate treatment” in the United States.

A source of rights group, the Tibetan Centre for Human Rights and Democracy, said that the Abbot of Chongri Monastery named Pagah and Geshe Orgyen were recently detained after a mass prayer ceremony was organized on 25 January by both the monastic and lay community in Tehor Township in Drango County.

Although the exact date of the detention could not be confirmed, it is most likely that that the two were detained in the first week of February, the TCHRD said.

Both the high ranking monks completed their monastic education from India before returning to Tibet, Pagah from Drepung Monastery in Mungod and Orgyen from Sera Monastery in Bylakuppe in the Indian state of Karnataka. Khenpo Pagah is from Tsogo Township in Drango County and Geshe Orgyen was born in Tehor Township.

Earlier in Drango County, authorities imposed a strict order banning all pictures of the Dalai Lama for sale or display in the County. The order prescribed against the risk of prosecution, the mandatory surrender of any Dalai Lama photos on sale and stock to authorities. Shopkeepers, who fail to comply with the set date to hand over all stocks of Dalai Lama photographs, cease sale and even display photos in shops risked to face punishment.
