from TIME magazine - august 20th:

new rules for living buddhas

is reincarnation possible? tibetans think so, believing their spiritual leader, the dalai lama, is the 14th reincarnation of the same god-king. but china has banned the dalai lama and tibet's other living buddhas from - get this - reincarnating without government permission.

the 14-part edict also prevents anyone outside china from taking part in the process to recognize a living buddha.

the rules seem ridiculous, but they aim to prevent the exiled dalai lama, 72, from helping identify newly reincarnated buddhas, allowing china to handpick people loyal to beijing.
