DHARAMSHALA, July 19: The office of the exiled Tibetan leader has rubbished remarks from a senior Chinese official who claimed Beijing’s authority over the reincarnation of the next Dalai Lama. An official from the Gadhen Podhrang, the Dalai Lama’s private office, said that such statements are “politically motivated” and yet another incident of China’s “bully-some antics”.

The response from the Tibetan leader’s office comes days after Wang Neng Sheng, Director General at the government of Tibet Autonomous Region told Indian reporters, “The current Dalai Lama was recognized by Beijing and his successor must be found through the “draw of lots in golden urn process” within China. The Dalai Lama’s reincarnation is not decided by his personal wish or by some group of people living in other countries.”

Senior official of the Tibetan leader’s private office, Ngaba Tsegyam told Voice of Tibet on Friday, “The Dalai Lama has been clear and consistent on the matter of his reincarnation. In his statement in 2011, he has made it very clear that his reincarnation will be decided by himself in consultation with the heads of Tibetan Buddhism as well as the Tibetan people.

“He has said that detailed instructions will be left on how to recognise his reincarnation and that the process of his discovery will be led by his own office. Hence there is no room for further discussions and need for any deeper introspection.”

Tsegyam further said that the statements made from China are nothing new in that it reflects Beijing’s politically motivated designs and their bully-some antics.

Also, a private secretary at Dalai Lama’s office Tsetan Samdup told Times of India on Wednesday, “The person who reincarnates has sole legitimate authority over where or how he or she takes rebirth and how that reincarnation is to be recognised. It is a reality that no one else can force that person concerned, or manipulate him or her.”

The Tibetan leader anticipating China’s appointment of their own 15th Dalai Lama told Reuters in March 2019, “In future, in case you see two Dalai Lamas come, one from here, in free country, one chosen by Chinese, then nobody will trust, nobody will respect (the one chosen by China). So that's an additional problem for the Chinese! It's possible, it can happen.”
