The Dalai Lama is apparently not leaving his reincarnation to chance. Taking a page from the playbook of millenialist Christians who leave instructional videos for their unraptured loved ones, the DL will leave written instructions about his own reincarnation:
DHARMSALA, India (AP) — The Dalai Lama said Saturday if he is to be reincarnated he will leave clear written instructions about the process, but that the matter is unlikely to come up for a number of years.
The Tibetan spiritual leader said in a statement that when he is “about 90” he will consult Buddhist scholars to evaluate whether the institution of the Dalai Lama should continue at all. He is 76.
