Dalai Lama 'may pick successor'

The Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, says he is considering breaking with centuries of tradition and naming his own successor.
Usually, following the death of a Dalai Lama, senior Tibetan Buddhist officials, guided by dreams and signs, identify a young child to succeed him.

But the Dalai Lama said he feared China would try to influence this process.

He said he was considering whether his successor should be picked by him, or elected by high ranking Buddhist monks.

When the world gets the next Dalai Lama, it will not doubt be politically influenced. I personally would prefer the Dalai Lama to be chosen the old fashion way. A long and difficult process it will be. Although on the up side, when the current man passes from this world, there will be an awful lot of faithful Buddhists very busy hoping for the next life of the Dalai Lama.
