Dalai Lama Says His Successor May Come From India, Sends Message to China

The Dalai Lama, the spiritual leader of Tibetan Buddhism, said on Monday it was possible that once he dies his incarnation could be found in India, where he has lived in exile for 60 years, and warned that any other successor named by China would not be respected.

Government denies change in stance on Dalai Lama to please China

The government on Friday said it has not changed its position on the Dalai Lama to please China and added that he’s free to carry out his religious activities in the country.
The Centre was reacting to media reports that it had asked government officials to stay away from events related to commemorate 60 years of the exile in India of the Buddhist spiritual leader.

This alleged directive was attributed to India not wanting to rock the boat vis-à-vis relations with Beijing, which considers the Dalai Lama a “dangerous separatist”, and which considers Tibet a part of China. The government didn’t specifically deny that it issued such a directive. All it said was that its position on the Dalai Lama hasn’t changed.
