Chapter Summary

According to custom, with the death of the thirteenth Dalai Lama, a regent was appointed to guide the government until the new Dalai Lama could be identified, educated, and established at the head of the government. As the search committee was formed to seek out the new incarnation of the Dalai Lama, Shakabpa himself accompanied the party seeking visions in the oracle lake called Lhamo Latso inhabited by Pelden Lhamo, the protector spirit charged with ensuring the well-being of the Dalai Lamas. The Regent Radreng Rinpoché had a tumultuous relationship with some segments of the government. In 1938, he managed to engineer the resignation of the Prime Minister Langdün Kunga Wangchuk, with whom he had until then shared power.
