Is This The Last Dalai Lama?

This month marks the 60th anniversary of the Dalai Lama’s flight from Tibet. His departure exposed the rift between the Tibetan faithful and the Chinese Communist Party (C.C.P.), one which has not closed in the six decades since—and which threatens to become even deeper once the current Dalai Lama, 83-year-old Tenzin Gyatso, passes on.

One thought on “Is This The Last Dalai Lama?

  1. Great post thank you for sharing. The next few years will be very in Tibetan Buddhism. As the Dalai Lama realizes his karma that China will mess with his rebirth as the Dalai Lama messed around in Karma Kagyu affairs and supported the Chinese Karmapa the same will now happen to him. It’s actually kinda funny. Anyway the article made a good point about the transfer of consciousness or the specific phowa practice of moving ones consciousness into another body presents an interesting opportunity for the Dalai Lama. He could say that the old Panchan Lama transferred his consciousness into Urgen Trinley the Chinese Karmapa, who has lived across the street from the Dalai Lama in Dharamsala for years, just before he was in prisoned by the Chinese. And that Urgen Trinley must now give up his claim to be Karmapa in order to be the Panchen Lama. He would kill two birds with one stone so to speak. He would bring peace to the Kagyu lineage after seriously damaging it with his unprecedented recognition of a Karmapa and he would fix his own predicament. What do you think?
