At the end of last year, the Dalai Lama expressed that he will "completely retire within six months", while, the "government in exile" made an announcement on Dec. 10 to entreat the Dalai Lama to continue to act as apolitical and religious leader of Tibet and stop thinking about and making any speech about retirement; on the same day, "president"of the "government in exile" said Dalai Lama's speech about his retirement made all Tibetans sleepless with no appetite. He also requested the Dalai Lama not to think about retirement.
After the Dalai Lama delivered his "resignation letter", Samdhong immediately asked his "parliament in exile" to seriously discuss a group of questions on Mar. 15, such as "Will the Dalai Lama's retirement decrease Tibet issue's international influence?", "Will the people in and out of Tibet deem Tibetan government in exile as legally representative?", "Will the talk with Chinese government go on?", etc. In a word, without Dalai Lama, the question will be whether the group can feed themselves or not.
We can say that whether the Dalai Lama retires or not, the political nature of the Dalai Lama and his followers' theocracy and splittism will never change, the factual status of the Dalai Lama among his followers will never change. If his retirement can really bring back the downfall destiny of Dalai Lama's clique, the Dalai Lama would have retired long before. Why would he even bother holding up his position till today? Therefore, we don't have to take the Dalai Lama's retirement so seriously.
Recently, the Dalai Lama once again said that: "Forty years ago, I was told by a foreteller that I can live as long as 113. And also, A Tibetan book stated 100 years ago that one person in today's world has the luck to live for 113 years, I think that person should be me. "It appears that the Dalai Lama----"son of India", made up his mind to go on his farce for a while. However, people are interested in how the Dalai Lama will end his farce this year.From: China Tibet Online
