I wish I knew how. I want his jet and all those millions of dollars he’s begged. The Dalai Lama must be running low on cash as he’s started another media campaign.
John Cleese as the banker: “That’s BRILLIANT! All you have to do is go to people and ask them for money? Why didn’t I think of that?”

just claim you are one, not many people will believe you but they dont matter.

i know it’s kinda strange but i read somewhere that the chosing of the avatar (avatar: the last air bender) was based on the traditions of the Tibetan Buddhism
“Once the High Lamas have found the home and the boy they believe to be the reincarnation, the boy undergoes a series of tests to affirm the rebirth. They present a number of artifacts belonging to the previous Dalai Lama and if the boy chooses the items which belonged to the previous Dalai Lama, this is seen as a sign, in conjunction with all of the other indications, that the boy is the reincarnation. If there is only one boy found, the High Lamas will invite Living Buddhas of the three great monasteries together with secular clergy and monk officials, to confirm their findings and will then report to the Central Government through the Minister of Tibet. Later a group consisting of the three major servants of Dalai Lama, eminent officials and troops will collect the boy and his family and travel to Lhasa, where the boy would be taken, usually to Drepung Monastery to study the Buddhist sutra in preparation for assuming the role of spiritual leader of Tibet.”
“However, if there are several possibilities of the reincarnation, in the past regents and eminent officials and monks at the Jokhang in Lhasa, and the Minister to Tibet would decide on the individual by placing the boys names inside an urn and drawing one lot in public if it was too difficult to judge the reincarnation initially.”

When the current Dalai Lama dies, they will choose several babies born within a certain time (six months, I think) from the day of the death, and watch them as they grow. The young boys will be taken from their homes by monks and brought to the monastery where objects will be placed before the boys. Some of the objects will be random and some will be personal favourite items the last Dalai Lama loved.
The boy who chooses one of the personal items and seems to know most about it, and who shows great wisdom beyond his years will be considered the reincarnated Dalai Lama. The the chosen boy will be groomed from then on to succeed the … uh, … throne.
I don’t know if I’m right and I don’t know why I know this!

Really Now?

Some old men come and throw some junk on the ground in front of you, while you are young and you are suppose to pick out 3 of the holy junk. If you do, you are the next Dalai Lama.
And people call theists kooky.

The High Priests pray to a sacred lake to find the reincarnation of the Lama. This can take up to four years.
Then they go to a Tibetan palace and live in opulence while everyone not of the priestly or governmental rank lives as a serf, toiling in mud and muck every day for their masters.
I wish I was making this up. Too few people realise that the struggle between Tibet and China isn’t as “good and evil,” “black and white” as Hollywood celebrities would have us believe.

You can keep your name like that. Or always think of him. Whatever one thinks constantly, he verily becomes that.
