Too Weird to be true: China regulates Reincarnation

From VOA News:

"The Dalai Lama says his successor could be chosen among a group of senior monks, rather than through the centuries-old tradition of reincarnation.

In an interview with VOA, the Tibetan spiritual leader said his successor could be chosen like the Pope, or he may decide to declare his own successor while he is still alive.

Chinese authorities issued a new regulation in July 2007 that requires all reincarnations - including the Dalai Lama - to be approved by the government."

The Dalai Lama's microphone of choice appears to be a Shure wireless mic, though I'm not certain.
