:namaste:
A leader who suggests an end to their own institution, especially something as complex and fraught as the tulku system, in the gentle and restrained manner HHDL has, is a great man. Will the Tibetans be able to follow where he is leading them?

Some might pessimistically say its not that great as he is facing his end. I think he needed the lifetime of goodwill to even breach the topic.
Those who, even with distracted minds,
Entered a stupa compound
And chanted but once, “Namo Buddhaya!”
Have certainly attained the path of the buddhas.

-Lotus Sutra, Expedient Means Chapter

There are beings with little dust in their eyes who are falling away because they do not hear the Dhamma. There will be those who will understand the Dhamma.

I have heard that HH Dalai Lama said he won't reincarnate until China give Tibet back to tibetans. My source is a traveller who were in Dharamshala a few months ago. It could be false, but still I won't wonder if HHDL would said that.
