Since Tibetan religious, cultural, and national identity are closely interwoven . Melvyn C. Goldstein and Matthew T. Kapstein.
Since Tibetan religious, cultural, and national identity are closely interwoven, religious revival in Tibet is indeed a matter of great delicacy. Chinese attempts to enhance cultural autonomy while denying political autonomy have been only moderately successful. eds. Berkeley: University of California Press, 1998. How do contemporary Westerners and Tibetans understand not only what it means to be 'Buddhist', but what it means to be hailed as one from 'the West' or from 'Tibet'?
Following the upheavals of the Cultural Revolution, the People's Republic of China gradually permitted the renewal of religious activity.

Cultural Survival Quarterly Magazine . Buddhism in Contemporary Tibet: Religious Revival and Cultural Identity. Matthew Goldstein's ethnographic case is Drepung, the world's largest monastery at the time of Chinese invasion, which he describes as an example (before 1950) of "mass monasticism," in which "scholar monks" were a minority, and where even illiterates and "punk monks" (ldab-ldob) had their places. Melvyn Kapstein examines the revival of a pilgrimage, where, as at Drepung, participants articulated the need to repress political agitation for the independence of Tibet for the sake of Tibetan cultural revival.
