Dalai Lama Refuses to be Reborn If Tibet Is Not Free

MOSCOW, September 10 (RIA Novosti) – The Dalai Lama will refuse to be reborn if Tibet can't gain its independence from China; Chinese authorities have asked the Tibetan spiritual leader to respect Buddhist traditions.
"We had a Dalai Lama for almost five centuries. The 14th Dalai Lama now is very popular. Let us then finish with a popular Dalai Lama. If a weak Dalai Lama comes along, then it will just disgrace the Dalai Lama. Tibetan Buddhism is not dependent on one individual. We have a very good organizational structure with highly trained monks and scholars," the Dalai Lama said in an interview with Welt am Sonntag, according to an English transcript of his words obtained by Al Jazeera.
