Editor's note: In recent years, the western media has inclined to mislead in their reports on Tibet. Appearing to be objective, the reporting of the western media actually has much distorted and misled information that implies political preconceptions. Taking Tibetan religious belief for example, many mainstream western media often add such comments in their reports as that "Tibetans' religious freedom is worrying under control of the atheist Chinese Communist Party that believes in materialism."

On his visit to Australia for cultural exchanges at the "Beauty of Tibet" Painting and Photography Exhibition, the painting master of the late 10th Panchen Lama, Nyima Tsering said, "The fact that the CCP acknowledges and protects the reincarnation system of Tibetan Buddhism has shown the greatest respect for Tibetan believers and convincing action of abiding by the Constitution."

Nyima Tsering was awarded the title of painting master by the 10th Panchen Lama himself. To refute those slanders, he said, "Over the years, the Dalai clique has distorted the real situation of Tibet. In the meanwhile, western media have slandered the development in Tibet and claimed that Tibetans' religious freedom is oppressed. But the fact is quite the opposite."

"For instance, even though the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is atheistic, it supports the practice of reincarnation, by which I am deeply touched. It was under these circumstances that the painting master of the late 10th Panchen Lama came into being, which means a lot," said Nyima Tsering.

As China's first class painter, Nyima Tsering offers a subtle blend of Chinese charm with western features in his Thangka paintings that show the world a real Tibet by depicting various themes besides religion, from Tibetans' daily activities to historic events, such as the reincarnation of the Panchen Lama.
