Description
Part 1: Chape [Tib. chab spel] was a Tibetan government lay official. In this interview, he discusses his work and how he received an order from the Kashag via the Garpön to recruit militia when the Chinese were on the banks of the Yangtze River in 1950, but the miser refused. He also describes how he became a school teacher in the first school set up in Shigatse in 1953. He discusses, critically, the views of the Sitsab, the conflict between the Tibetan government and Labrang, and what happened in Shigatse after the revolt in Lhasa. Part 2: Chape [Tib. chab spel] was a Tibetan government lay official. In this interview, he discusses what he saw in the Chinese official documents about the Dalai Lama's visit to the Military Headquarters in 1959. Part 3: Chape [Tib. chab spel] was a Tibetan government lay official. In this interview, he discusses how Labrang set up schools on some of its estates. He also describes how one of the Labrang estate stewards disseminated a lot of propaganda on reforms, but that later the miser held struggle sessions against him during the reinvestigation (Tib. kyarshib [Tib. skyar zhib]) of the reforms campaign. He explains how the disputes between the Shung and Labrang were settled in Beijing and in Tibet, but how both sides were not satisfied in the end. He also discusses, in detail, how Mao Zedong sent Ya Hanzhang to Tibet to investigate the relative power of the Dalai Lama and the Panchen Lama, and how he finally indicated that the Dalai Lama was the main leader of Tibet and the Panchen Lama was the second. sound recording | 3 text files. | 3 digital audio files. | Part 1: 95 min 8 s | Part 2: 5 min 20 s | Part 3: 68 min 39 s | China (Place Of Recording).
