Dalai Lama-VII

India police conducted a raid against the 27-year-old Tibetan Karmapa Lama (monastery of Ogyen Trinley Dorje) in Dharamshala on 28 January 2011 and seized an unspecified amount of cash (totaling $1.6 million) including Renminbi (Wall Street Journal 10 February 2011). The 17th Karmapa is officially recognized by China and in Tibet as one of the most senior spiritual leaders after Dalai Lama and Panchen Lama. Often he has been considered to be the leader after Dalai Lama resigned (Dalai Lama resigned in March and Harvard Law School educated Lobsang Sangay has succeeded him Dalai Lama). In 1991, Karmapa Lama came to India by escaping from China after an eight-day journey by foot and horseback across the mountains. The Karmapa’s office has explained these cash donations from Tibetans in China, but the Indian police believe that Karmapa has been a Chinese spy. The 17th Karmapa could be the figure to unit the Tibetan movement once Dalai Lama dies.
