In the movie Kundun I don't understand, Dalai Lama reborn??? what?

Okay I dont know much about the Dalai Lama, but what I thought is that there was just the one guy and he was awesome and everyone loved him ect. But I watched the movie trailier for Kundun (about his life) and at the very first they go looking for him because hes been reborn…. sooo…. do they do that everytime that he dies… go searching for a kid thats looks like him?


  1. That’s correct. The Dalai Lama is reincarnated over and over again. He rejects Nirvana to help lead the world.

  2. Buddhism isn’t elitist like the mono god religions. There have been many Buddha’s to prove everyone is capable of achieving enlightenment. They were ordinary people, just like you and me. 🙂
    Practicing Shaman… quantum physics rocks.

  3. That’s a very good movie by the way. I bet you didn’t know that Martin Scorsese is banned from China because of this movie.
    But as everyone else stated, the Dalai Lama is a reincarnated leader. I really don’t understand how it works either. But this is a typical Buddhist and Hindu belief that human beings are reincarnated till they eventually reach a higher level of awareness. This of course means you could be reincarnated as anything till you actually learn to be better in life and hopefully come back as a human and hopefully reach enlightenment as well.
    That’s typically the belief as I come to understand it from studying Buddhist and Hindu beliefs.

  4. Kundun is such a good movie. 🙂
    But yes, as others have said, the Dalai Lama is reborn so they must search for his reincarnated spirit.

  5. yeah they look for kids
    they test them by showing them stuff that used to belong to the dalai lama : the logic being the child could not know about the items owned by the dalai unless he was the dalai lama – if he chhoses wisely he is a potential candidate.
    there is another lama called the panchen lama – (the second most important lama) the panchen lama helps find each new dalia lama and each dalai lama helps find the new panchen lama
    the panchen lama chosen by our present dalai lama was kidnapped by the chinese authorities after he was found – the Chinese then made their own panchen lama and the chinese will try to choose the new dalai lama when the present one dies.
    they have no right to do so and if they succeed they will control two fake spirtual buddhist leader and screw the whole thing up like they did with the land of Tibet too .
    i dislike the Chinese authorities so heavily it is hard to put into words. – they are utter scum.

  6. I have not seen KUNDUN, but I do not believe that they can go looking for someone who physically resembles the late Dalai Lama. It is based on the ability to perceive the soul of the former Dalai Lama.
    As an Extended Christian, I believe that reincarnation is naturally impossible, and that there is some other explanation- namely that Deceiving Devils transfer parts of souls they destroy into other hapless bodies, when they steal their Divine Life Energies bestowed by God at their birth.
    JOHN 1:1-4,9.
    IN THE Beginning was the Word,
    and the Word was with God,
    and the Word was God.
    2. The same was in The Beginning with God.
    3. All things were made by Him;
    and without Him was not any thing made that was made.
    4. In Him was Life; and The Life was The Light of Men.
    9. That was The True Light, Which lighteth every man
    that cometh into The World.
    EVERY PERSON is subject to attack from Devils, who steal away the Divine Knowledge (which is Power) from their hearts because of their ignorance and unbelief:
    MATTHEW 13:19.
    19. “When any one heareth The Word of The Kingdom,
    and Understandeth it not, then cometh The Wicked One,
    and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart.
    This is he which received seed by the Way Side.”
    LUKE 8:11-13.
    11. “Now the Parable is this:
    ‘The Seed is The Word of God.
    12. ‘Those by the Way Side
    are they that hear;
    then cometh The Devil,
    and taketh away The Word
    out of their hearts,
    lest they should Believe and be saved.
    13. ‘They On The Rock are they,
    which, when they hear,
    receive The Word with joy;
    and these have no root,
    which for a while Believe,
    and in Time of Temptation fall away.’ ”
    OBVIOUSLY, IT IS the parents’ duty to protect Their offspring until they can protect themselves. This does not usually happen, as most parents do not even believe that this is happening (i.e. they think that their kiddies howl and scream for no reason whatsoever).
    The PANCHIN LAMA is the partner to the Dalai Lama, and it is his job to make the positive identification of the Dalai Lama, while the Dalai Lama has to identify the Panchin Lama’s new incarnation when he dies.
    The Lamaism and other systems are flawed by *seeing* only partway into the Spiritual Realm. They can *see* pieces of souls, so they can make positive identifications, but they do not *see* the high-level manipulations performed on those soul fragments to make them believe that they are something they are not, and so suck millions of other souls into oblivion.
    How can a man live for thousands of years, and be totally clueless on how to free his own people? Especially when he believes that he himself cannot die?
