Dalai Lama's Retirement: political farce (7)
08:35, April 06, 2011  

Will Dalai Lama really retire?

As a matter of fact, the 14th Dalai Lama has issued his statement about "retirement" many times, but failed to keep his promise again and again, which indicates that he is unwilling to retreat from his post as a political manipulator at all.

According to his statement issued on a press conference held in India's Kalimpong on Dec. 14, 2010, he meant to retire from administrative affairs only. In his opinion, the 14th Dalai Lama will no longer sign for things such as managing the items of an account or making an announcement about holding a conference, just like "president" of a nation. And that is all about of his "retirement".

This time in his letter to the "parliament", the 14th Dalai Lama only vaguely proposed to amend the "Charter for Tibetans in exile", while ignoring key articles about the theocracy system, his status and power entirely.

In contrast, he expressed that he would never abandon public affairs when confronting "significant difficulties". Actually, he aims to set aside enough space in advance for him to participate in international affairs in the amended "charter".

In fact, to retire or not is out of Dalai Lama's own decision. If he refuse to take any further part in Tibetan affairs, how about those guys who lived on "independence of Tibet" led by him?
