A Civil Servant
“In 1928, the Mongolian and Tibetan Affairs Commission was established in Nanjing. At each meeting, when she spoke, the audience would praise her fluent Tibetan; having served as a translator for several months, she was promoted to the role of special interpreter between Lobsang Pasang and Chiang Kai-shek. Chiang Kai-shek spoke highly of her and invited her to serve as a clerk in the National Government” (A Mission to Xikang and Tibet—Ms. Liu Manqing).
In the winter of 1928, the 13th Dalai Lama sent Mkhan-po Lobsang Pasang Lama, who was stationed at Wutai Mountain as the plenipotentiary to Nanjing, to meet Chiang Kai-shek, Chairman of the National Government. Lobsang Pasang was concerned that his Chinese would not be good enough to fully express what he wanted to say, so Liu Manqing was recommended as an interpreter.
Organizational chart of the National Government (from October 1928 to November 1930). The position of the first-class clerks is in accordance with the hand-drawn diagram in the house of Yao. Liu Manqing was appointed first-class clerk in 1929 and became a section member in 1930.
