Over 300 Tibetans gather for 3rd Special Meeting

DHARAMSHALA, October 3: Close to 350 Tibetans from all around the world have gathered here at the headquarters of the Tibetan government in exile, officially known as the Central Tibetan Administration, to participate in the third Special Meeting from Oct 3 – 5, 2019.

The three-day meeting is being attended by 345 delegates from 24 countries to brainstorm on the two agendas of ‘5-50 Vision’ and ‘the relationship between the lineage of His Holiness the Dalai Lamas and Tibetan People’.

Speaking on the occasion, the Speaker of Tibetan Parliament in Exile said, "His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s reincarnation is the prerogative of His Holiness and the traditional office of Gadhen Phodrang and not that of any state, institution or individual."

The President of Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) Lobsang Sangay said it is crucial for Tibetans to step up to China’s ominous and long-term design on everything Tibet, especially the reincarnation of the 14th Dalai Lama.

He inferred that China's 'Management Measures for the Reincarnation of 'Living Buddhas’, a document published as order no. 5 in 2007 is a ruse, proven false by its own figures.

The number of reincarnation the document claimed to have recognized at the time of publication stood at 300 which spiked to 800 in April 2016, and 1300 six months later, in sharp contrast to 545 reincarnations from all three regions of Tibet from 1901 to 1950.

“More recently, Beijing invited nine Indian journalists who after a week in China sought to steer the government of India away from questioning China’s claim to recognition of the 15th Dalai Lama,” he added.

Sangay said it is Beijing preparing to assert legal and historical context in its bid to recognize the 15th Dalai Lama.

The special meeting of the key actors of the exile administration hopes to formulate ways to protect the original recognition process of His Holiness Dalai Lama’s reincarnation from ubiquitous Chinese encroachment.

The participants were divided into ten committees which will bring suggestions and recommendations to be discussed further.
