ABSTRACT
The article reports on the resignation of Khenpo Tsanor, the 70-year-old head of Dungkyab monastery in Gade county in Qinghai, China. He was reportedly asked to step down from his post when he refused to accede to the Chinese government's demand that he sign a commitment to condemn the Dalai Lama under its renewed patriotic education drive. However, Tsanor defended himself by saying it was his personal decision to resign after knowing that those who refuse to resign might face criminal trial.
