Dalai Lama is one of the most revered religious figures in the world and is looked upon by one and all. He has been living in India for the past few decades and people flock from different countries to take his blessings.
But China shares some different views on it.
DALAI LAMA’S VISIT TO ARUNACHAL PRADESH
Much hue and cry were made by the Chinese Government on Dalai Lama’s present visit to Arunachal Pradesh which they allegedly consider to be Southern Tibet.
China has threatened to continue blocking India’s entry into NSG.
In clear words, the Indian Government stated that there was no need for their counterparts to create any “artificial controversy” over this issue and that No additional color should be ascribed to Dalai Lama’s religious and spiritual activities and visits to various states of India.
But Why does China hate Dalai Lama so much?
The people of Tibet considers the Dalai Lama to be the human form of Avalokiteshvara, an enlightened being of compassion and is also considered to be a political leader for them.
Till now, 14 Dalai Lamas have been recognized, adored and worshiped by the people. They have a strict religious lifestyle and primarily teach others with no pleasure of procreation.
THE SEARCH FOR THE NEXT ONE
As there is no procreation, the Tibetan Government and important religious outfits like The high Lamas of the Gelugs have a nationwide search to find the new Dalai Lama after the passing of the current one which can go up to years.
The inconsiderate and corrupt Chinese Government has declared that it will select the next Dalai Lama because of which the current 14th Dalai Lama passed a statement that he could be the last Dalai Lama to ever exist.
HOSTILE RELATIONS BETWEEN CHINA AND TIBET
There exists a lot of bad blood between China and Dalai Lama. The 13th Dalai Lama managed Tibetan independence from China in 1912. After a gap of 40 years, China invaded Tibet. Recognized in 1950, the 14th Dalai lama fought against the Chinese but to no avail.
A few years later, the Tibetan people again revolted against the Chinese but it bore no fruit. Dalai Lama fled Tibet as his life was on the line and set himself in India from where he maintained his position as the spiritual and political leader of the Tibetan people.
AN EPITOME OF PEACE
But in the midst of all the protests, he remains an epitome of peace all over the world. He even received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989 for his genuine and commendable efforts to peacefully reconstitute a unified Tibet from the clutches of China.
Tibet may never be independent again but the 81-year-old Dalai Lama remains to be the torch bearer for Tibetan independence and more importantly for world peace.
