Dalai Lama says Chinese hardliners have parts of brain missing

 –

Chinese hardliners have parts of their brains missing, exiled Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama said in an interview aired this week, comments likely to infuriate Beijing, which views the Nobel Peace laureate as a dangerous separatist.The Dalai Lama, who fled into exile in India after a failed uprising against Chinese rule in 1959, denies espousing violence and says he only wants genuine autonomy for Tibet.The animosity between the two sides, and their rivalry for control over Tibetan Buddhism, is at the heart of the debate about reincarnation.Speaking to U.S. comedian John Oliver in India’s northern town of Dharamsala, where the exiled Tibetan government is based, he also said he might be the last Dalai Lama.”Very possible,” he said. “If I become the last Dalai Lama, I feel very happy.”Tibetan Buddhism holds that the soul of a senior lama is reincarnated in the body of a child on his death.
