Did you know the next Dalai Lama could be from India?

The Dalai Lama describes it as "freedom in exile," but it's a "freedom" which has lasted longer than he likely ever dreamed about. This year marks the 60th year of exile for Tibetians in India. 

The globe-trotting monk, now 83, is the 14th Dalai Lama and has to soon announce his successor. But there are many theories regarding his new successor nothing concrete has come out yet. 

Tibetians belive in life after death. So every time a Dalai Lama passes away his soul reincarnates into a young boy. His Holiness has also suggested that depending on the situation at the time of his death he can transform himself metaphysically into the body of an adult. A painful process described in the Buddacharitra.

Dalai Lama has also claimed in an interview, that since he has lived all his life (almost 60 years) in India. It is quiet possible that the next Dalai Lama could be from India. 

Tibet has been under the Chinese occupation for the last 60 years. The regeime is tough and has imposed really hash sanctions on the Han Chinese (Tibetians). Causing many to flee the country. There is no freedom of movement and all the entry and exit points are controlled by Chinese authorities. 

Do you think this small religious country who see the world in an entirely different prespective deserve freedom? Let us know in the comments below.
