As the present spiritual leader of Tibet Tenzin Gyatso is turning 86 on July 6, the question of his succession comes into limelight. Based on spiritual signs and visions, the successor of the Dalai Lama is traditionally identified by senior monastic disciples.

The Dalai Lama is not just a religious issue but also a political issue because of its highly influential figure. That’s why since 2011, China is insisting that they will be deciding the successor and no recognition should be given to any other candidate 

Brooke Schedneck, writing in Asia Times said that Tibet’s Buddhists said that they will find the next reincarnation of Tenzin Gyatso but Beijing is Bent on deciding the succession.
