China Gets to choose who comes back

A new law in China gives the government the power to force buddhist monks to seek government permission before they are reincarnated.
“The so-called reincarnated living Buddha without government approval is illegal and invalid,” according to the order, which comes into effect on September 1

So why have this law?
It is the latest in a series of measures by the Communist authorities to tighten their grip over Tibet.

And the communist work to kill faith in all of it's forms.
The boy chosen by the Dalai Lama has disappeared. The abbot who worked with the Dalai Lama was jailed and has since vanished.
