    TIBET - CHINA When a Dalai Lama dies, the Panchen Lama is tasked with finding his reincarnation. The current Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, recognised Gedhun Choekyi Nyima as the Panchen Lama on 14 May 1995 thanks to the work of two lamas he had sent. A few days later, Chinese police abducted the six-year-old boy and his family. Their whereabouts remain unknown. In November 1995, China "picked" Gyaltsen Norbu as its Panchen Lama, claiming it had applied more authentic religious rituals than those used by the Dalai Lama as part of its policy to exert tighter control over Tibet's religious practices. In 2010, Norbu entered Chinese politics by taking part in the activities of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, which advises the National People's Congress, China's parliament.

    TIBET - CHINA Over time, "the Panchen Lama has contributed significantly to the dissemination of Buddhist teachings, working for the wellbeing of every thinking person. For this reason, the 10th Panchen Lama, Lobsang Trinley Gyaltsen, paid for his opposition to Chinese rule. Now his reincarnation does the same," Abbot Lobsang said. "The boy taken by the Communist is a victim as well of China's plans to undermine and control Tibet's religion and people. The abduction and disappearance of the true Panchen Lama and his replacement by a puppet are proof that religious freedom does not exist in Tibet and that children are not spared from Communist cruelty."

    05/03/2012 VATICAN. Pope: to respect man, science cannot do without faith. Scientific research and quest for meaning "spring from a single source, that Logos that presides over the work of creation and guides the understanding of history." The loss of this unity generates a crisis of thought. "A dangerous imbalance between what is technically possible and what is morally good, with unpredictable consequences." Rome (AsiaNews) - Restoring research both the "wings" of science and faith, to overcome the situation in which "rich in means, but not in ends, mankind today is often influenced by reductionism and relativism, which lead to a loss of the meaning of things; as if dazzled by technical efficacy, he forgets the essential horizon of the question of meaning" and is linked to a mentality which generates " a dangerous imbalance between what is technically possible and what is morally good , with unpredictable consequences.

TIBET - CHINA
Beijing-abducted Panchen Lama "to remain in Tibetans' hearts"
On the birthday of Tibetan Buddhism's number two religious leader, who was abducted by China when he was six years old, the abbot of Tashi Lhunpo Monastery slams "Beijing for trying to weaken our hearts". However, "they will not succeed." Hence, "let us pray for his return."

Dharamsala (AsiaNews) - Tibetan believers will "never forget the real Panchen Lama, abducted by Beijing when he was six. They will continue to fight for his liberation and return home. China might hope to break our spirit but it is making a big mistake," said the abbot of Tashi Lhunpo Monastery, home to the Panchen Lama, on the latter's 23rd birthday, which he is spending captive.

When a Dalai Lama dies, the Panchen Lama is tasked with finding his reincarnation. The current Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, recognised Gedhun Choekyi Nyima as the Panchen Lama on 14 May 1995 thanks to the work of two lamas he had sent.

TIBET – CINA
Il Panchen Lama rapito da Pechino “rimarrà per sempre nel cuore dei tibetani”
L’abate del monastero Tashi Lhunpo, la tradizionale residenza del Panchen Lama, scrive in occasione del compleanno del numero 2 del buddismo tibetano, rapito dal governo cinese quando aveva 6 anni: “Pechino vuole fiaccare i nostri animi ma non ci riuscirà. Continuiamo a pregare per il suo ritorno”.

Dharamsala (AsiaNews) - La comunità dei fedeli tibetani "non dimenticherà mai il vero Panchen Lama, rapito da Pechino quando aveva 6 anni, e continuerà a lottare per la sua liberazione e per il suo ritorno a casa. La Cina spera di spezzare il nostro morale, ma sbaglia di grosso". È quanto scrive l'abate del monastero Tashi Lhunpo, la "casa" del Panchen Lama, in occasione del 23esimo compleanno (in prigionia) del giovane.

Il Panchen Lama ha il compito, dopo la morte del Dalai Lama, di riconoscerne la nuova rinascita. L'attuale Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, ha riconosciuto come Panchen Lama il giovane Gedhun Choekyi Nyima il 14 maggio 1995 proprio grazie al lavoro dei due lama, da lui inviati nella ricerca: pochi giorni dopo la polizia ha rapito il bambino di 6 anni e la sua famiglia, da allora scomparsi.

Nel novembre 1995 la Cina ha "scelto" Gyaltsen Norbu come "vero" Panchen Lama, adducendo l'utilizzo di rituali religiosi "più autentici" di quelli del Dalai Lama, per attuare uno stretto controllo sulla pratica religiosa nella regione. Nel 2010 Norbu ha fatto ingresso anche nella vita politica nazionale, partecipando ai lavori della Conferenza politica consultiva del popolo cinese, organismo che affianca l'Assemblea nazionale del popolo.

Negli anni, scrive l'abate Lobsang, "la figura del Panchen ha contribuito in maniera significativa alla diffusione degli insegnamenti del buddismo e ha lavorato per il benessere di ogni essere senziente. Già il 10mo Panchen Lama, Lobsang Trinley Gyaltsen, ha pagato per la sua opposizione al dominio dei cinesi: ora la sua rinascita subisce lo stesso".

Secondo il religioso "anche il ragazzino scelto dai comunisti è una vittima. Una giovane vittima del piano cinese, che vuole minare e controllare il popolo, la religione e la nazione tibetana. Il rapimento e la sparizione del Panchen Lama legittimo e il suo rimpiazzo con un burattino sono una prova evidente di come non esista libertà religiosa in Tibet, e di come neanche i bambini siano risparmiati dalla crudeltà comunista".

Pope: to respect man, science cannot do without faith
Scientific research and quest for meaning "spring from a single source, that Logos that presides over the work of creation and guides the understanding of history." The loss of this unity generates a crisis of thought. "A dangerous imbalance between what is technically possible and what is morally good, with unpredictable consequences."

Rome (AsiaNews) - Restoring research both the "wings" of science and faith, to overcome the situation in which "rich in means, but not in ends, mankind today is often influenced by reductionism and relativism, which lead to a loss of the meaning of things; as if dazzled by technical efficacy, he forgets the essential horizon of the question of meaning" and is linked to a mentality which generates " a dangerous imbalance between what is technically possible and what is morally good , with unpredictable consequences. "

Benedict XVI again today reaffirmed the idea that scientific research and quest for meaning, even in their specific physiognomy "spring from a single source, thatLogos that presides over the work of creation and guides the mind of history". His comments came during his visit to the Roman Catholic Sacred Heart University, on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Faculty of Medicine, named after the founder Agostino Gemelli.

"Ours - the Pope began- is a time when the experimental sciences have transformed the world view and understanding of man. The many discoveries, innovative technologies that are developing at a rapid pace, are reason for pride, but often are not without troubling implications. In fact, behind the widespread optimism of scientific knowledge, the shadow of a crisis of thought is spreading. Rich in means, but not in aims, mankind in our time is often influenced by reductionism and relativism which lead to a loss of the meaning of things; as if dazzled by technical efficacy, he forgets the essential horizon of the question of meaning, thus relegating the transcendent dimension to insignificance. In this context, thought becomes weak and an ethical impoverishment gains ground, which clouds legal references of value. "

"The once fruitful root of European culture and progress seems forgotten: " In it, the search for the absolute - the quaerere Deum - included the need to deepen the secular sciences, the entire world of knowledge", because everything originates from the same source.

Today it is also "important then that the culture rediscover the vigour and dynamism of the meaning of transcendence, in a word, it must open up to the horizon of quaerere Deum. One is reminded of Augustine's famous phrase "You created us for you [Lord], and our heart is restless until it rests in you" (Confessions, I, 1). One can say that the same impulse to scientific research stems from nostalgia for God which lives in the human heart: after all, the men of science tend, often unconsciously, to reach for that truth which gives meaning to life. But however passionate and tenacious human research is, it is not capable of finding a safe harbour by its own means, because "man is not able to fully elucidate the strange shadow that hangs over the question of eternal realities ... God must take the initiative to encounter and speak to man "(J. Ratzinger, Benedict's Europe in the Crisis of Cultures, Ignatius Press). To restore reason its native, integral dimension we must rediscover the wellspring that scientific research shares with the search for faith, fides quaerens intellectum, according to the Anselmian intuition. Science and faith have a fruitful reciprocity, an almost complementary requirement of intelligence of what is real. ".

"But man's quaerere Deum could loose itself in a tangle of roads if it were not met by a path of illumination and safe harbour, which is God who makes himself close to the man with great love".

"A religion of the Logos, Christianity does not relegate faith to the irrational sphere, but attributes the origin and meaning of reality to the creative Reason, which is manifest in the crucified God as love and invites us to walk the path of quaerere Deum "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life".

" Experienced integrally, research is illuminated by faith and science, and from these two 'wings' draws impetus and momentum, without ever losing the right humility, the sense of its own limitations. Thus the search for God becomes fruitful for intelligence, a leaven of culture, promoting true humanism, a research that does not stop at the superficial".

Papa: per rispettare l'uomo, la scienza non può fare a meno della fede
Ricerca scientifica e domanda di senso "zampillano da un'unica sorgente, quel Logos che presiede all'opera della creazione e guida l'intelligenza della storia". La perdita di questa unità genera una crisi di pensiero. "Un rischioso squilibrio tra ciò che è possibile tecnicamente e ciò che è moralmente buono, con imprevedibili conseguenze".

Roma (AsiaNews) - Restituire alla ricerca entrambe le "ali" di scienza e fede, per superare la situazione nella quale "ricco di mezzi, ma non altrettanto di fini, l'uomo del nostro tempo vive spesso condizionato da riduzionismo e relativismo, che conducono a smarrire il significato delle cose; quasi abbagliato dall'efficacia tecnica, dimentica l'orizzonte fondamentale della domanda di senso" e, si lega a una mentalità che genera "un rischioso squilibrio tra ciò che è possibile tecnicamente e ciò che è moralmente buono, con imprevedibili conseguenze".

Benedetto XVI torna oggi a riaffermare l'idea che ricerca scientifica e domanda di senso, pur nella loro specifica fisionomia "zampillano da un'unica sorgente, quelLogos che presiede all'opera della creazione e guida l'intelligenza della storia". Lo fa nel corso della visita compiuta alla sede romana dell'Università cattolica del Sacro Cuore, in occasione del 50mo anniversario dell'istituzione della Facoltà di medicina e chirurgia, che porta il nome del fondatore Agostino Gemelli.

"Il nostro - rileva il Papa - è un tempo in cui le scienze sperimentali hanno trasformato la visione del mondo e la stessa auto comprensione dell'uomo. Le molteplici scoperte, le tecnologie innovative che si susseguono a ritmo incalzante, sono ragione di motivato orgoglio, ma spesso non sono prive di inquietanti risvolti. Sullo sfondo, infatti, del diffuso ottimismo del sapere scientifico si protende l'ombra di una crisi del pensiero. Ricco di mezzi, ma non altrettanto di fini, l'uomo del nostro tempo vive spesso condizionato da riduzionismo e relativismo, che conducono a smarrire il significato delle cose; quasi abbagliato dall'efficacia tecnica, dimentica l'orizzonte fondamentale della domanda di senso, relegando così all'irrilevanza la dimensione trascendente. Su questo sfondo, il pensiero diventa debole e acquista terreno anche un impoverimento etico, che annebbia i riferimenti normativi di valore".

"Sembra dimenticata" quella che è stata la feconda radice europea di cultura e di progresso: "in essa, la ricerca dell'assoluto - il quaerere Deum - comprendeva l'esigenza di approfondire le scienze profane, l'intero mondo del sapere", in quanto tutto ha origine dalla stessa fonte.

Anche oggi "è importante allora che la cultura riscopra il vigore del significato e il dinamismo della trascendenza, in una parola, apra con decisione l'orizzonte delquaerere Deum". "Si può dire che lo stesso impulso alla ricerca scientifica scaturisce dalla nostalgia di Dio che abita il cuore umano: in fondo, l'uomo di scienza tende, spesso inconsciamente, a raggiungere quella verità che può dare senso alla vita. Ma per quanto sia appassionata e tenace la ricerca umana, essa non è capace con le proprie forze di approdo sicuro, perché «l'uomo non è in grado di chiarire completamente la strana penombra che grava sulla questione delle realtà eterne... Dio deve prendere l'iniziativa di venire incontro e di rivolgerSi all'uomo» (J. Ratzinger, L'Europa di Benedetto nella crisi delle culture, Cantagalli, Roma 2005, 124). Per restituire alla ragione la sua nativa, integrale dimensione bisogna allora riscoprire il luogo sorgivo che la ricerca scientifica condivide con la ricerca di fede, fides quaerens intellectum". "Scienza e fede hanno una reciprocità feconda, quasi una complementare esigenza dell'intelligenza del reale. Ma, paradossalmente, proprio la cultura positivista, escludendo la domanda su Dio dal dibattito scientifico, determina il declino del pensiero e l'indebolimento della capacità di intelligenza del reale".

"Ma il quaerere Deum dell'uomo si perderebbe in un groviglio di strade se non gli venisse incontro una via di illuminazione e di sicuro orientamento, che è quella di Dio stesso che si fa vicino all'uomo con immenso amore".

"Religione del Logos, il Cristianesimo non relega la fede nell'ambito dell'irrazionale, ma attribuisce l'origine e il senso della realtà alla Ragione creatrice, che nel Dio crocifisso si è manifestata come amore e che invita a percorrere la strada delquaerere Deum: 'Io sono la via, la verità, la vita'".

"Vissuta nella sua integralità, la ricerca è illuminata da scienza e fede, e da queste due «ali» trae impulso e slancio, senza mai perdere la giusta umiltà, il senso del proprio limite. In tal modo la ricerca di Dio diventa feconda per l'intelligenza, fermento di cultura, promotrice di vero umanesimo, ricerca che non si arresta alla superficie".
