The 11th Panchen Lama, Bainqen Erdini Qoigyijabu, held a prayer meeting on Tuesday at Yonghegong, or the Lama Temple, in downtown Beijing for victims and survivors of Lushan County's 7.0-magnitude earthquake.

The Panchen Lama chanted together with the temple's monks, students from the High-level Tibetan Buddhism College of China, and Tibetan buddhists and nuns in the main hall of the temple, praying that the affected people's homestead will be well reconstructed.

The Panchen Lama also made a solo chant of sutra to pray for the deceased to have joy and the living to avoid suffering. He also prayed for world peace and people's well-being.

So far, it has been confirmed that at least 192 people died during and after the devastating quake which jolted Lushan and other counties in southwest China's Sichuan Province on Saturday morning. More than 11,000 people have been injured.
