Khedrub Gyatsho (born November 1, 1838 in Kangding in what is now Sichuan ; died January 31, 1856 ) was the eleventh Dalai Lama .


Khedrub Gyatsho died at a young age and as a result of the conflict between Tibet and the Chinese Empire there are no records of his life. Since three candidates were eligible for incarnation of the tenth Dalai Lama, Khedrub Gyatso was selected by lot with the help of the Golden Urn donated by Emperor Qian Long . In 1846 the 11th Dalai Lama took his monastic vows before the 7th Panchen Lama in the Jokhang in Lhasa. In 1852 he visited the monasteries Sera , Drepung , Ganden , Chökhorgyel on Lhamo Lhatso (a sacred lake in Tibet; Tib .: lha mo bla mtsho ) and Samye to give lectures and hand out alms. In March 1855 he took over secular power in Tibet, which he exercised for less than a year, since he died on January 31, 1856.
