    Dalai Lama: Last Week Tonight with John Oliver

    I guess John Oliver has no plans to visit China in the next few years. Maybe more critical questions about 'reincarnation' were needed!

    I'm not sure why commies are better than monks. In other words, a communist regime is no better than a theocracy

    When the day comes that our Spiritual Leader HH Dalai Lama passes on, The reincarnation process is going to be so fucked up as Beijing will definitely step in and say they found one inside Tibet and have him named as the reincarnation so that they can keep him there and control him from young up so as not to cause trouble to the CCP.

    The Tibetan Exiled govt / community in Dharamshala will try to find one themselves, its going to be really Messy. Lets hope his holiness keeps on living for a long time

    The Dalai Lama is a fucking fraud, the only thing he is good at is tricking white people into thinking he is some revered Asian figure.

    In point of fact, Tibet has been a semi-autonomous province of China for over a thousand years. Until 1959, it was ruled as a theocratic dictatorship, with over ninety percent of the population living as serfs in a feudalistic system of involuntary servitude. Workers were routinely bought and sold as slaves, and punishments for speaking irreverently about the Dalai Lama included eye-gouging and tongue removal. Amputation of hands and feet were commonplace punishments for even minor criminal infractions.
