Dalai Lama will soon decide on his successor: Sikyong Sangay
[Monday, May 22, 2017 22:05]

DHARAMSHALA, May 22: The President (Sikyong) of the Tibetan Government-in-Exile, Dr. Lobsang Sangay, said that His Holiness the Dalai Lama would soon decide on his successor.

Speaking at the ‘Indo-Tibet Summit-2017’ in New Delhi before leaving for Washington DC on May 20, Sangay said that the Dalai Lama is yet to make any decision regarding his successor as of now but may elect one soon.

“As far as the next Dalai Lama is concerned it’s already on the table and he can come through reincarnation, selection or emanation. These options are on the table but not yet executed,” he said, “He (the Dalai Lama) says that he will decide at the age of 90, but I think it should happen sooner and I think it is likely to happen.”

Dismissing claims made by the Chinese hardliners of their prerogative over the selection of the next Dalai Lama, the Harvard-educated Sikyong said that Beijing’s selection of the successor would be illegitimate.

“The communist party says religion is poison. They don’t believe in religion. They destroy monasteries and disrobe monks and nuns. What is the basis of legitimacy they will have to select the next Dalai Lama? Not at all,” the 48-year-old president said.

On the occasion, Sangay thanked the Indian government for being the ‘spine’ for the Tibetan struggle.

“The Tibetan freedom struggle is the original ‘made in India’ struggle. The cornerstone of Tibetan freedom struggle is based on the foundations of the Indian philosophy of ahimsa. The success of Tibetan freedom struggle will be India’s success story,” he said.

He also added that a new chapter of hope and success would be written when ‘freedom is restored’ in Tibet and when the Dalai Lama, and Tibetans inside and outside reunite.
