I think it is more than just the government who had given the Indians a bad impression on Tibetans. The Tibetans themselves are not so pleasant people either. There are many occasions where Tibetans are extremely arrogant and rude to India because Indians are not so well off compared to the Tibetans.

The Tibetans treat the Indians as someone below them and they do not respect the Indians at all. That is why it angered the Indians even more because the Tibetans are guests in India and they are feeding off the kindness of Indians.

In some occasions, Tibetans are found guilty of abusing the kindness of India by cheating their welfare system to get more aids for themselves while there are Indians who needed the help more than the Tibetans. However, the Tibetans are selfish and cared only about themselves. This is why Tibetans created a lot of anger towards them.


Many Indians are not happy with Tibetans. Due to India's culture of spirituality, they respect His Holiness the Dalai Lama very much, that is why in general, Indians do not mind Tibetans staying in India. However, some people couldn't stand how Tibetans are taking advantage of the status as "refugee" and trying to get more than what was given. Since 2017, Indians, even the indigenous community in India have protested against Tibetans. You can read here: http://www.dorjeshugden.com/all-articles/news/indians-openly-demand-tibetans-go-home/


The only reason why Nehru opened their border for the Tibetans is also His Holiness the Dalai Lama. The Tibetans without His Holiness the Dalai Lama will be nothing. There is nothing good about them that India would want to accept them and let them stay in their country for free over 60 years ago.

The Tibetans know this clearly and that is why they are very worried about the post-Dalai Lama time. They will be in a dangerous situation to be deported and face with homelessness. They should have taken the effort to be on India's good book so that they would want to let the Tibetans stay in the country. However, they created so many problems and make everybody angry at them for the past 60 years.

Now His Holiness is at a mature age where he can choose to leave this current body anytime. That is why CTA is panicking now and tried their best to find a solution for the post-Dalai Lama era. This will not happen if they just maintained the peace and not create any troubles in the first place.

Recently, His Holiness had chest infection. It is worrying that His Holiness is manifesting illness, and also showing he is old. Now at 83, His Holiness is manifesting old age where it is getting harder for him to travel the world to boost awareness of the Tibetan cause. I wonder if there will be more hidden message in the Dalai Lama's speech. These few years, there seems to be a lot of hidden message, 'blunders', and so on. I believe His Holiness did them on purpose, because he's a great scholar with great memory, it is impossible that he is forgetful or unaware.

His Holiness is not getting any younger, and he starts to manifest more old age health problems now. He is reducing his travelling and events around the world to recuperate and not straining his frail body. It is getting worrisome as the Tibetans in Exile are still depending on His Holiness to bring them back to Tibet.

After 60 years of being a refugee in India, they still have not progressed much in their fight for independence. Everything is still status quo since 1959 when His Holiness escaped Tibet. The opportunity for Tibetans to fight for freedom is now gone. His Holiness the Dalai Lama is clear on this, and that is why he suggested Umaylam instead of continuing with Rangzen.

Umaylam is more possible compared to Rangzen, and everyone should be fighting for it. However, His Holiness still requires cooperation from the Tibetan government who is attending Rangzen meeting and functions. They should be on the same page with His Holiness and not ignore his suggestions. I hope the Tibetan government will realise this fast enough to treasure the remaining time that His Holiness has for them on earth.

Another of the Dalai Lama's speech infuriates China. I wonder why His Holiness keeps making statements that seem to contradict his effort or direction. If His Holiness is serious about returning to Tibet, shouldn't he befriend China and not say such things?  ???


Observers Warn the Future Prospects of Two Dalai Lamas
April 22, 2019 5:52 AM
Joyce Huang


Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, center, is assisted by his aides as he arrives to interact with an audience of educators, in New Delhi, India, April 4, 2019.

Beijing has reacted strongly to recent remarks from Tibet's exiled spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, who in late March suggested that his successor may come from India.

Chinese authorities have insisted that the selection of the next Tibetan Buddhist leader must comply with Chinese laws” – an indication that China looks set to repeat another reincarnation controversy similar to that of the 11th Panchen Lama’s anointment in 1995.

The legitimate holder of that title, Gedhun Choekyi, who the international society suspects was forced into disappearance by China, turns 30 this Thursday.


Two Dalai Lamas?

Analysts say the possibility of two Dalai Lamas – one chosen by China and the other in exile – is real.

China feels that it can use the next pro-Beijing Buddhist leader as a propaganda tool to strengthen its narrative that it is protecting Tibetan culture and Tibetan language.

But such repressive policies can only backfire, said Tom Grunfeld, a professor at Empire State College of the State University of New York.

“By repressing them, they create disloyalty to the state. The consequences of their [China’s] action is the exact opposite of what their goals are. And the more repression, the more disloyalty,” said Professor Grunfeld.

“And so, in Tibet, on the surface, things are calm, but under the surface, there’s enormous anger against the Chinese,” added the professor.


Golden Urn

China may resort to drawing lots from a golden urn to select the successor of the 14th Dalai Lama as it had done so in choosing the 11th Panchen Lama.

The use of a golden urn was introduced by the Qing Dynasty in the late eighteenth century to signify its authority over Tibetan leaders.

But the method won’t win the hearts and minds of Tibetan Buddhists, neither will they venerate any local religious leaders chosen through the urn, said Dawa Tsering, Taipei-based representative of H. H. the Dalai Lama.

“The drawing of lots from a golden urn means nothing but a bottle, which has no religious and cultural value to Tibet. Not a single Tibetan has had faith in the so-called Han Panchen Lama, recognized by China,” Tsering said.

Neither will Tibetans venerate the successor of the Dalai Lama if he’s named by Chinese authorities, he added.

Professor Grunfeld agreed, saying that the fact that many Tibetans refuse to hang the picture of the Panchen Lama, recognized by China, is a “political statement” that they don’t accept the incumbent Panchen Lama.


Power Play

Tsering criticized that China’s power play in Tibet has had a devastating effect on the Tibetans’ practice of Buddhism and cultural heritage.

He added that China, under the leadership of Chen Quanguo, who now serves as the Communist Party’s secretary in Xinjiang, has long implemented measures to transform Tibetans, similar to the practice in Xinjiang’s re-education camps.

Authorities in Tibet can’t be reached for comment and VOA’s calls to the Tibetan Commission of Ethnic and Religious Affairs got hung up on.

The Dalai Lama fled to India in 1959 after a failed uprising against Chinese rule and has since worked to promote religious and cultural autonomy for his people.

China has called the exiled leader a dangerous separatist – an accusation the Dalai Lama has long flatly denied.

He told a group of visitors in March that he has ceased to appeal to the United Nations since 1974 to declare Tibet’s independence.

Instead, he hopes to engage with Chinese officials through dialogues, seek to pursue true autonomy for all 6 million Tibetans, wrote Chinese dissident Yang Jianli in an article, who led a delegation to visit and meet with the Dalai Lama in March.


No Official Meetings

But no official meetings have been made between his exiled government and the Chinese authorities after 2010.

According to Grunfeld, China held a tight grip on the monasteries and repression in society is also tight. Thus, any resistance to the Chinese rule is doubtful to succeed.

At least 154 Tibetans are confirmed to have resorted to self-immolation as a way of protest against China.

In spite of such protests, China shows no sign of easing its controls in Tibet.

“Self-immolation represents a form of individual [protest], which may hurt China’s [international] image, but won’t rock the boat to change the political landscape [in Tibet],” said Kou Chien-wen, a professor of East Asia Studies from National Chengchi University in Taipei.

Kou said Tibet won’t be left alone now that China is tightening controls all over the country.

Neither will China give up its authority to designate a pro-Beijing leader in Tibet -- similar power it has in Hong Kong, where China has the final say in the territory’s chief executive, Kou added.

I also find the lack of consistency in His Holiness' speech. On the one hand, His Holiness wants to return to Tibet, and His Holiness gives the impression that he's willing to do anything. Yet, His Holiness continues to challenge China with these kinds of statement that the Chinese will not be able to have any influence in the selection of his incarnation/successor.

That is really contradictory of what His Holiness usually does or say. For example, His Holiness has been consistent in saying that Tibet doesn't want independence and wants autonomy. That part of it, His Holiness has been very consistent for years now, so why other messages/speeches are not consistent?

I agree with you Pemachen. Recently, His Holiness's speech is getting more and more inconsistent. He changes his mind so quickly on so many things and that confuses a lot of people. Example, he said that his current reincarnation will be the last incarnation of the Dalai Lama incarnation line. However, he recently expressed that his next reincarnation is most probably to be found in India.

It was prophesized that the 14th Dalai Lama will be the last Dalai Lama and there will be no future reincarnation of the incarnation line. The 14th Dalai Lama will also be the most powerful incarnation among all the Dalai Lamas. It is partly true because he is the one that brought Tibetan Buddhism to the world especially the western world.

He has the most impact in the world compared to the other Dalai Lamas. As his age rise close to 100, it might be time for him to leave his mortal body. Many high Tibetan lamas pass away in the age which is around 80. Once His Holiness passes into the clear light, the Tibetan in Exile will be leaderless and their dream to return to a free Tibet will be crushed.
