Why 14th Dalai Lama wants to "retire"?
08:28, April 06, 2011  

It is obvious that the Dalai Lama's "retirement" is merely a farce to protect him when he realized the situation was against him. For example, the so-called "cabinet" resigned and the "parliament" was forced to dismiss in 1991 due to a series of violence triggered by the frequent exposures of corruption of the Dalai clique.

To ease the conflict, the Dalai Lama declared that he would "semi-retire" form post. However, the fact proved that the Dalai Lama still has the final say in all major decisions of the Dalai clique.

In 2008, the internal contradiction of the Dalai clique became even worse after their failures to sabotage the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games, so the Dalai Lama again put forward his "semi-retirement" and planed to retire totally.

As expected, the convention strongly urged him not to retire. Taking the advantage, the Dalai Lama announced he would not retire and continued to serve Tibetan people in his lifetime.

As he wishes, his trick of "concession" makes a great coup.

In this way, the Dalai Lama can not only win "consistent support" from his followers but also help his followers to avoid being marginalized in the world.

The French leading newspaper Le Monde and the British newspaper The Guardian commented that the Dalai Lama’s action has made him much more popular in the west than before.

The "retirement" of the Dalai Lama is another move to realize the political power transition and keep the "government in exile" running. Ever since he fled aboard after his failure of military rebellion in 1959, the Dalai Lama has never stopped pursuing the so-called "Tibetan Independence". But till now, the Dalai Lama is aged with the years while the "Tibet Independence" is still in an indefinite future, shadowed the Dalai Clique with anxieties and disappointment.

In the letter the Dalai Lama wrote to his "parliament", he expressed his worries and concerns about the fate of his "government in exile" during post-Dalai period and urged to adopt the new system right away. Here the Dalai Lama told the truth that "retirement" is to help other Tibet separatists create a favorable condition, in case that some day "When the tree falls, the monkeys will scatter away".
