China: Government Takes Tibetan ‘Living Buddhas’ On Tour Of Communist Historical Sites

The Chinese government took a group of Tibetan “living Buddhas” on a weeklong tour to visit sites deemed of historical importance to the ruling Communist Party, say media reports in China.

Among the locations that the 20 or so “living Buddhas” visited included Shaoshan county, the hometown of late leader Mao Zedong, reported the South China Morning Post citing mainland media sources.

“I feel that our country is wealthy and powerful. It’s a socialist new China built by numerous martyrs,” said one of the “living Buddhas” about the tour, reported Tibet.cn.

The report said that the “living Buddhas” vowed allegiance to the central government.

Similar tours run by the government’s United Front Work Department have similarly been conducted for Christians, Taoists and Muslims in China.

    How sad and scary at the same time.
    The Chinese regime is even more crazy than even Mao was.
