Phüntso Wangye was to be taken to Sichuan with his two sons, and they would stay in a nice cottage formerly used by Guomindang army officers. Out of solitary confinement and apparently entering human life again, all he could feel was fear and depression. Talking was hard for Phüntso for a long time. The visit to Beijing rehabilitated him in many ways. The fact that the Panchen Lama had come to visit him in person and offered to help meant a lot to Phüntso's family and him, and was another sign that coming to Beijing had been the right strategy. He had been officially declared rehabilitated, reinstated to his old rank and status in the party, and been toasted and his opinions sought by party officials at a banquet in his honor.
