No more Dalai Lamas?

As if the idea the Chinese can dictate and regulate one's reincarnation isn't outlandish enough comes word that His Holiness the Dalai Lama is talking about redefining the succession of Dalai Lamas and perhaps ending the chain with him. His recent remarks reported here are cause for pause.

I for one always thought HHDL would be with us. I selfishly assumed that I would be able to study with him whenever I wanted, now or in the future.
