Dalai Lama-VI

Lobsang Sangay was elected as the prime minister of the exiled Tibetan government after the Dalai Lama resigned. Dalai Lama called, “some of my political promulgations such as Draft Constitution for Future Tibet (1963) and Guidelines for Future Tibet’s Polity (1992) will become ineffective (Japan Times 27 May 2011).”  As a Chinese journalist indicates, basically the Dalai Lama’s statement ends the policy of independent Tibet because documents both in 1963 (which declares Tibetan independence) and in 1992 (which implicates Tibet is not a part of Chinese territory). When Lobsang Sangay was interviewed by BBC News “Hard Talk” in May 2011, this Harvard Law School scholar insists on no violation of its movement. However, everyone whether in Beijing or in Dharamshala are focusing on one thing right now. That is, when is the 75-years-old Dalai Lama going to die? Will the 14th Dalai Lama like the fifth Dalai Lama (in 1679) pick his successor before he passes away? Can anyone in Dharamshala conceal the fact from Beijing as the Dalai Lama dies? Obviously, two 15th Dalai Lamas might emerge after this Dalai Lama is gone.
