The Dalai Lama fled across the Himalayas to India in 1959 in the aftermath of a failed uprising among Tibetans to Chinese rule.Many observers believe that China is confident that the Tibetan movement will lose much of its potency and global appeal when the charismatic Dalai Lama dies.The Dalai Lama has also increasingly spoken of succession and has not ruled out picking his reincarnation before his death, fearing that China would instead pick its own boy whom it would use to advance its agenda.His stance has led Chinese communist rulers, who are officially atheist, to insist that the Dalai Lama can only reincarnate after his death.
