The Dalai Lama, addressing the 14th conference of the Tibetan religious heads, has said there should be no hurry about his reincarnation as he is in a good health.
The three-day conference of the religious heads concluded today at Dharamsala. The conference was organised to discuss the reincarnation of the Dalai Lama after the Chinese government issued statements that it had right to decide over who would be the reincarnation of the Tibetan spiritual head.
Thanking the participants about the concern over his reincarnation, the Dalai Lama recalled an incident. “Once I was in the US and a journalist asked me about my reincarnation. I took out spectacles and asked, ‘Is there any hurry,’” said the Dalai Lama with his usual giggles.
The Dalai Lama said he was in a perfect mental and physical heath. He would live long as he put others before self and this contributed to his longevity, he said.
He said the people, who had self-immolated in Tibet were very courageous. They sacrificed their lives for the Tibetan cause but did not harm anybody. They should remember them in prayers, he said.
Recalling the difficulties faced by the community when they left Tibet, the Dalai Lama said, “We were in a very difficult situation. People from the trans-Himalayan area – Arunachal Pradesh, Ladakh and Sikkim — have been very helpful in preserving Buddhism.”
He said the Buddhism had three main streams – religion, science and philosophy. He said scientists acknowledged that science could go with the Buddhism. In China, there were many Buddhists and their numbers were increasing.
During the conference, leaders adopted a resolution, urging the Dalai Lama to reincarnate according to the Tibetan traditions and declared that Tibetans would never accept a spiritual leader appointed by China.
The resolution also said the Dalai Lama alone had the authority to decide how his reincarnation would take place and that no government had the right to interfere in that process.
The conference was organised by the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA), heads and senior masters of all Tibetan Buddhist lineages as well as of the Bon religion.
The resolutions adopted during the conference also said if China for political ends would choose a candidate, the Tibetans would not recognise and respect him.
Tibetan political leader Lobsang Sangay spoke on the meddling of China in his reincarnation.
