Dismissing China claiming to nominate the following Dalai Lama, the President of the Tibetan Government in Exile has mentioned that it’s the Tibetans who have ‘copyright’ over reincarnation, and Beijing plans to have a ‘duplicate’ copy.
Lobsang Sangay, Sikyong (President) of the Central Tibetan Administration (Tibetan Government in Exile), mentioned, “Communist Party of China has zero credibility, as far as reincarnation is concerned. The Communist Party believes in atheism. They say religion is poison, why do they want to interfere in our internal affairs.”
Responding to a query from WION in an occasion, Sangay who the political successor to Dalai Lama defined, “For almost a thousand years, we the Tibetans have selected our own reincarnate lamas, including the Dalai Lamas. So we have the patent and copyright over reincarnation. So we are the original and Chinese will have a duplicate. Original, original hota hai, duplicate, duplicate.”
China, presumably eager to make improve its affect on Buddhism has mentioned that it’s going to appoint the following Dalai Lama, the fifteenth within the line of succession. The present Dalai Lama is the 14th one and needed to go away Tibet in 1959 after the area was occupied by China.
Asked if China may do a repetition of Galwan or Doklam incident, he mentioned, “Very likely, 60 years ago after they occupied Tibet, they said, once we occupy Tibet as the palm, they will come after 5 fingers right. What you saw in Doklam, is one of the 5 fingers. What you saw in Galwan is one of the 5 fingers, these kinds of incursions will continue ultimately Chinese government policy is expansionist. These kinds of incidents will keep happening.”
The 2020 Galwan incident noticed the dying of 20 Indian troopers on the Line Of Control in Eastern Ladakh resulting from aggressive Chinese actions. 2017 Doklam incident noticed China attempting to occupy Bhutanese territories, which was stopped by Indian forces.
