China says it will choose next Dalai Lama by draw of lots

Dalai Lama begins teachings at Tawang monastery in India

Tibetan spiritual leader His Holiness, the 14th Dalai Lama has emphasised on rationality of religion stating that mere rituals are not important if the deeper meaning of religion is not understood. He also said the "some specific Indian official" had indulged in provocative political statement but did not name Pema Khandu.

India and China have been negotiating to resolve the border dispute for more than 20 years but an agreement is yet to be reached.

The Dalai Lama's week-long trip to Arunachal Pradesh state, an eastern Himalayan region administered by India but claimed by China as "southern Tibet", has infuriated China, where the Nobel Peace laureate is considered a unsafe separatist. India should "safeguard political foundation of bilateral relations and and do not take any provocative actions". From India's perspective, the Dalai Lama is the spiritual leader of the Tibetan Buddhist community, and so has the right to minister to his followers at the great Tibetan Buddhist monastery in Tawang. It's not the Indian territory. Last week, Junior Home Minister Kiren Rijiju asserted that Arunachal Pradesh is an "inseparable part of India" and asked China to refrain from "interfering in India's internal affairs", comments that earned him the wrath of state-run media in China which accused him of failing in attempts to be "cute". "The Indian government has made solemn commitment on Tibet-related issues and the boundary question", he said. He also attacked the Chinese government on Tibet-related issues and advocated political view on splitting China.

"We have lessons to learn from history". Its Foreign Ministry issued a statement saying the next Dalai Lama will be chosen by drawing lots from a sacred urn in Lhasa.

The Dalai Lama's visit to Tawang, the town along the India-China border where the sixth Dalai Lama was born 334 years ago, has always had unnerving optics for Beijing. Even as the Modi government has taken care to describe China's latest fulminations over the Dalai Lama's Tawang visit as "artificial controversies", it has equally chosen to disregard its warnings of seriously damaging bilateral relations. Its media and foreign ministry has repeatedly aired its opposition to the Tibetan Buddhist leader's visit to the region. He called himself a son of India and backed up unfounded statement of official of so-called Arunachal Pradesh.

Building on the argument in the leading daily, Lu claimed Tibet is achieving faster growth.

"The Dalai Lama left by helicopter for Lokpriya Gopinath Bordoloi worldwide airport in Assam's Guwahati this morning from Tawang helipad with thousands of people lining up along the road to see him off", a government official said.
