living Buddhas must obtain permission to reincarnate

 Well leave it to China to come up with this one, China is basically trying to regulate the practice to assert it’s authority and dominance over it’s people. This would be something like America demanding permission for us to pray, all I can say is thank God for being able to live in a country like America who is still free. Anytime you buy imports from a country such as this, think about what you are supporting, this is one way I look at it which is not to say it is the right by any means but that is the way I see it. To look at a story like this makes one grateful to be able to have freedom of religion among the other great freedoms we enjoy.

    My friend overheard this in Beijing today: “Now Dalai Lama is getting old. So of course he is thinking about his next life, the next Dalai Lama. He wants to select his next one. Of course he cannot select where he will live. He knows when he passes, maybe without the permission of central government of China, maybe he cannot get re-life”

    She took some video of the exchange, as well, which you can see at: http://beijingwideopen.org/2007/08/05/video-from-the-lama-temple/

    Hello Nathan thanks for dropping by and for the link in-put video, I am glad you enhanced this post. When I first saw the article it struck me as China just flexing it’s muscles, pushing it’s authority you might say. Thanks again for the comment and stop by again, don’t be a stranger.
