The Dalai Lama's 'retirement' is only a lie
09:48, January 20, 2012  

Editor's note: Recently, the 14th Dalai Lama was interviewed again by New Delhi TV (NDTV) and he claimed that "my position is a semi-retired position". Even NDTV can't help asking him about the so-called "semi-retired". As a matter of fact, all the words that the Dalai Lama has used to describe his "retirement" are political farce.

The spokesman of the "Tibetan government-in-exile" announced on May 31, 2011 that the "parliament of Tibetan government-in-exile" held a conference in Dharamsala of India approving the "Amendment" of the "Charter of Tibetan government-in-exile", and the 14th Dalai Lama formally gave up his political and administrative power after he transferred his political responsibility to Lobsang Sangay, who was elected as Prime Minister of the "Tibetan government-in-exile" at the end of April.

That must be the Dalai Lama's so-called "retirement".

Has the Dalai Lama really "retired" this time? Not at all. He only turned over his "political responsibilities" to the so-called "leaders elected by the Tibetan government-in-exile". It was merely a political farce.

The author believes that such a farce aimed to draw more attention as he would no longer be able to attract others' attention by riots or ridiculous arguments after plotting the March 14th Riots in 2008.

It is not difficult for us to see through the Dalai Lama's scheme by analyzing the process of his "retirement" with his activities below:

In November, 2010, the Dalai Lama claimed that he would "retire" within 6 months so that he would be able to concentrate on practicing Buddhism as a simple lama.
