The tired Tibetan

The predicament of the modern Tibetan is a poignant one: How does one believe in rebirth when the very symbol of that credo – the 14th Dalai Lama – has himself suggested that he may not return to be the 15th Dalai Lama? It is akin to Jesus Christ disowning the dogma of resurrection.
