ABSTRACT
The article looks at the politics of reincarnation in Tibet. It reports on the announcement from the State Administration for Religious Affairs in China of its plans to enact a new law prohibiting the 14th Dalai Lama to be reborn anywhere but on Chinese-controlled soil. The Dalai Lama has previously declared that he will never again be reincarnated in Tibet as long as his homeland remains under the control of the Chinese government. It considers the issue surrounding the 17th Karmapa Lama, who is expected to assume leadership of Tibet after Dalai Lama.
