The Chinese Communists have issued an order to Tibet’s living Buddhas that they must obtain government permission before they reincarnate.
Apart from the obvious observation on the utter nonsense of a government officially committed to aethism demanding control over reincarnation, it will be interesting to see which of these world views ultimately outlasts the other. Buddhism is about 2500 years old, Chinese Communism less than half a century. Still, the Chinese government has immense power to coerce. Whether it will be able to neuter Tibetian Buddhism is unclear.
