    Such a nice day. Such a cheery chap.
    Those Tibetan bhuddists love embracing the diversities in the world. They seek to convert no one, and also want to learn about and preserve other cultures.
    Awesome people.
    The best question came from a young boy-"how did you get to be picked Dalai Lama?"
    He said: "Oh thats a very long answer. But shortly they sent out of lot of search parties to look for me. After a while they found 3 babies that could've possibly have been me. One died. And out of the other two ...Well I won. "

    Funny stuff.

    That's insanely egotistical.

    Thats what he said.
    Also he did over state these "search parties" that were being sent out to find him.
    He must've said "search parties" about 10 times.
    Everyone thought it was real funny.

    If you think he's egotistical, fine. But I wouldn't make that call about someone I haven't met and just took one of their lines out of context, but whatever floats your boat ...

    Actually, that is not quite true. They first came to me but then I tried to explain to them that Christ came in the image of God and died for their sins. The next thing I knew they were running for the door. I believe their exact words were, "Give us three steps mister, give us three steps mister, give us three steps towards the door. Give us three steps mister and you will never see us no more......for sure!!!"

    Not only that , apparently the young infant has to choose the possesions and clothes of the last one.
    Imagine a 2 or 3 year old picking the correct clothes from his predeccessor when the other monks are trying to fool him with objects/clothes that are similar but not the same as the last lama.

    I guess the bottom line is that the Tibetans accept it, they accept the process of finding the next dalai lama, which makes them extremely gullible or extremely wise.

    And lets not forget the wholesale slaughter of the peaceful Tibetans by the Chinese. To my knowledge they have not retributed with violence of any sort despite having their fellow countrymen killed like defensless animals.

    only three steps? 😛

    edit: it may not be true, but it is a truism of eastern reeligons in general.

    Well,the Khampas a Tibetan tribe did fight against the Chinese occupation army,bravely too. The Khampas were either massacred or fled to India. The Chinese crushed a rebellion in Lhasa about 2 or 3 years ago. The Chinese are bent on subjugating Tibet and erasing its culture and religion.
