I am certain that the Dalai Lama could, if he wanted to and despite his own comments about his mortality, choose to live for as long as he thought necessary in his current incarnation/body.
As for outliving the criminal communist regime in China...I can't see them going anywhere anytime soon.
My thoughts are ever with the ordinary people in both China and Tibet and those brave enough to speak out against tyranny to their own peril, who must suffer under conditions that most of us in freedom in western countries could scarcely imagine.

"o us, he is an omnipresent deity — grinning from book covers, appearing on yoga DVDs, preaching via Twitter, giving speeches in Toronto. But he is virtually invisible in Tibet — where his tweets go unread and his voice unheard.

For all his persuasive powers abroad, the Dalai Lama remains powerless at home: lacking leverage with China’s rulers and, increasingly, his own people."
These are my views about the exiled Dharmasala resident or president with the name Dalai Lama.

Let me ask his tour schedules for the last 40 years. He came to India as a political victim during nehru's time.
He is still there where he landed and travelled all over the 5 continents..
Now My q
How many times he had visited some countries which subscribe his political, religious, ethical, moral views--Sri Lanka; Burma(myanmar) Thai land

If is far away from DHARMASALA then how many states in India he had graced with his visit?

I'm just guessing here, but I'll bet you never met the man nor lived in China or Tibet. Either that or your a democrat

No one care about his vissions; missions or his birth certificate..
The fact is this.
I see him very often here in Germany but i had never saw him in India where he vegitate or live with some thousand servants and fans and devotees.

I think you have a very vivid imagination and no experience of living in China to back it up.

You guys are all crazy. "the Dalai Lama could live for as long as he thought necessary in his current incarnation/body" hahaha
He is probably visiting his doctor right now.
Eactly how old are you guys?
I think the commentor called 'god' might have been right when he said, and I quote him. "i see buddhist orginastaions as fascist as all religious orginasations are."
I never thought...maybe this statement is true. Maybe anybody and everybody envolved in religion is nuts.
Now Marlin The Psychic is going into a trance to see the future.
Awe yes.., I see Young Caine and Master Po talking.
Young Caine: You cannot see.
Master Po: You think I cannot see?
Young Caine: Of all things, to live in darkness must be worst.
Master Po: Fear is the only darkness.

You have never been to Tibet, have you?

If you had, you would realize that he is well-known and in fact LOVED by the Tibetan people.

The most frequent request made to me by Tibetans when I visited was: "Please, do you have a picture of H.H. the Dalai Lama that you could give me?"

I did. I took 100 with me from some Tibetan friends in Canada and gave away every single one after being asked.

Your name is Ramafuchs, and you are an employee of the Chinese Communist Party.

Nice try, lackey.

Unfortunately I had not been to this holy part of the globe.
It is not my intention to belittle any citizen of religious fervor.
I am a communist not made in China.

Kindly excuse me please.
I know your religious CEO Dalai lama who is a lovely person with a DECENT brother.

A communist? How sad.

You must love failure.

I assure you that this Chinese Communist regime will soon fail just as all of the others did.

That should please some part of your materialistic "soul"; or whatever it is you (who are so certain of the nonexistence of a spiritual life or considerations)call it.

News Flash! The "Communist" part of our "regime" fell long ago, tho to fool the foolish we cunningly kept the name. You, w/o changing your name, way more foolishly, adopted the loosing ideology. Ha! The jokes on you!

Exposing your ignorance once again? Buddha was born in Nepal. BTW, DL is in the dark about the Dharma, tho he can quote it, unless you want to give an example of his wisdom

You want something big to happen. But I can assure you that (if) the day this regime fails or China hold elections, China immediately turn into a nationalist country. Believe me, nationalist always think CCP is too weak on issues like this.

China is already a nationalist country. A National Socialist country. It's called 'Nazism' in other words.

Looking for a scapegoat (Japan, Tibetans, Norway, etc.) and attacking them just like the Nazis did to the Jews. Just like Imperial Japan did to China.

Imperial Japan copiers.
