Tibetan Spiritual Leader Dalai Lama can not change Rituals to appoint Successor: China

Tibetan spiritual leader, Dalai Lama.

Beijing, May 27, 2017: China on Friday said the Dalai Lama has no right to change the rituals and processes, set by the Chinese government, for appointing his successor.

Reacting to the Tibetan spiritual leader’s remarks that his incarnation cannot be born in a place where “there is no freedom”, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lu Kang said at a briefing, “The title of Dalai Lama is given by the central government. There are fixed set of religious rituals and processes and these cannot be changed by one individual.”

“As for the reincarnation in Tibetan Buddhism and the Dalai Lama reincarnation is concerned, the competent departments of the government have talked about it and have also issued a white paper. The 14th Dalai Lama is also clear about this,” Lu said.

“The 14th Dalai Lama was also enthroned under the representatives of the Republic of China at that time,” he added.

China calls the 14th Dalai Lama a separatist who has been demanding autonomy in Tibet. The Tibetan spiritual leader fled to India in 1959 after a failed uprising and has been living there since then. (IANS)

  1. What astonishing chutzpah the Chinese Communist Party displays. They are nothing but a gang of thieves.

  2. China has no right to place or set rituals of another nation or make rules for another nations internal affairs. Tibet and its people are not of Chinese origin and China is the illegitimate entity that interferes in the affairs of another nation. The Tibetans can decide their own destiny and follow its religious icon His Holiness the Dalai Lama. The monks of Tibet have their own committee to find and appoint the Dalai Lama. Nature in its own wisdom has evolved so that the new Dalai Lama even though a child finds the committee. These are the truths the Tibetan budhist monks believe. Tell China not to spread ugly propaganda news.

  3. Government of China makes up fantasies like the power it holds that it can solely enthrone the Dalai Lama. Tell China to get the hell out of Tibet and not manipulate and make up stories like the rebellion inside Tibet had to be crushed and other stories that say His Holiness is a dissident of the Tibetan race and not a genuine Dalai Lama. Tibet and the Dalai Lama are legitimate indipendent nation. China is playing the false god of Tibet. That Tibet can not decide anything about Tibet and everything about Tibet is to be decided by the Government of China. It is amazingly disgusting that China can make up so many lies. Chinese news is full of deciet and lies and that is why it is called the Chinese propaganda.

  4. We need some hackers to take down China’s firewall so the all the various peoples being oppressed by the communists can organize and take down the party.

  5. U want to take away Tibet as well as interfere in their culture?
    Y is China trying to harm probably the best religious leader in this world and most renowned after the Pope?
