No Reincarnation Without Permission
In a move which would be comical if it were not so serious, the Chinese Communist Party has brought in new rules to apparently " Completely Control" Buddhism in Tibet and keep it under Communist control.
The new rules which come into force on September the 1st state that "Lamas are no longer allowed to reincarnate with out first obtaining permission from the communist authorities".
Such permission might be hard to obtain from an atheist official in advance and no doubt what the rules really mean is that all official recognition of a particular incarnation can only be obtained from the communist party.
Obviously the CCP wishes to appoint it's own to every position of authority within Tibetan Buddhism, Just as it has tried to do in the case of the current Panchen Lama, who was abducted 12 years ago at the age of 6 and has not been heard from since.
The Communist Party has already announced that they will select the new Dalai Lama from inside Tibet. However the Dalai Lama has stated on many occasions that his next incarnation will be born outside Tibet, in a free country unless an acceptable resolution to the Tibet Issue has been agreed.The Web Site of the Chinese Communist Party said:
"If there is any self-claimed Living Buddha without government and religious affairs department approval, this said reincarnation would be illegal and invalid". The Chinese government has long insisted that it must have the final say over the appointment of the most senior Tibetan monks. In 1995, the Dalai Lama and Chinese authorities chose rival reincarnations of the 10th Panchen Lama, who died in 1989. After the Dalai Lama, the Panchen Lama is the most important figure in Tibetan spiritual hierarchy, and will identify the next Dalai Lama, when the current one, now 72 years old, dies. As a result, Beijing could control the eventual selection of the fifteenth Dalai Lama. Religious freedom in Tibet is strictly limited by the Chinese government. While some religious practices are tolerated, officials forcibly suppress activities viewed as vehicles for political dissent or advocacy of Tibetan independence. Possession of pictures of the Dalai Lama can lead to imprisonment, and Religious Affairs Bureaus continue to control who can study religion in Tibet.
Only boys who sign a declaration rejecting Tibetan independence, expressing loyalty to the Chinese government, and denouncing the Dalai Lama are allowed by Chinese officials to become monks. In a move which has been noted across the world China has sacked all or nearly all ethnic Tibetans from all government positions in the occupied state of Tibet.
Some 10,000 or more ethnic Tibetans have unceremoniously been sacked with immediate effect today leaving phones unanswered and offices empty.
China has called on volunteers from Han areas to replace the ethnic Tibetans and have apparently received 10,000 or more volunteers from across Han areas.
It is hard to escape the conclusion that China is attempting to eradicate all Tibetans from any position of real authority in Tibet and read this as further evidence of the "Cultural Genocide" that His Holiness has warned faces Tibetans in the coming years. China Claims to have peacefully liberated Tibet and to have freed the people.
60 years later 6,000 monasteries have been bombed and destroyed, 1.5 million out of a total of 6 million slaughtered and all Ethnic Tibetans have been removed from any pretence of authority.
Tibetans are outnumbered in Lhasa by Han Chinese and the Tibetan language is actively discriminated against.
Not only that but China now requires all Incarnations of important Lama's to be verified by the Atheist Communist Beijing officials, laughable if it were not so serious.
Tibetan People are facing a serious attempt to annihilate their culture and people, by the Communists.
