The Dilemma of Dalai Lama/Dalai Lama-I
On July 3, envoys and the Chinese government held the second meeting since Tibet’s 3.4 riot. Unfortunately, there was little breakthrough between two sides primarily because Dalai Lama supporters have differing opinions on how to solve the issue. Certain radical supporters want to use violence to resolve the issue creating a huge headache for Dalai Lama who hopes to foster a non-violent movement. These supporters cause friction with the Chinese government who has asked the Dalai Lama to control violence in the region. Other factions of Dalai Lama’s supporters believe as the Dalai Lama in non-violent activity. Each faction struggles to take charge with respect to the “exile” government. Unfortunately, the time is not on the Dalai Lama’s side because he is not going to live forever, and his followers have begun to go different way to resolve the problems. By tradition when the 14th Dalai Lama passes away, the 15th Dalai Lama will need to be “investiture” by the Chinese central government. By then, what are the followers of Dalai Lama going to do? Now it is time to show the wisdom of Dalai Lama to persuade his supporters to share a unified voice in dealing with the Chinese government!!
