China Bans Reincarnation Without Government Permission

In one of history's more absurd acts of totalitarianism, China has banned Buddhist monks in Tibet from reincarnating without government permission. 

According to a statement issued by the State Administration for Religious Affairs, the law, which goes into effect next month and strictly stipulates the procedures by which one is to reincarnate, is "an important move to institutionalize management of reincarnation." 

But beyond the irony lies China's true motive: to cut off the influence of the Dalai Lama, Tibet's exiled spiritual and political leader, and to quell the region's Buddhist religious establishment more than 50 years after China invaded the small Himalayan country. By barring any Buddhist monk living outside China from seeking reincarnation, the law effectively gives Chinese authorities the power to choose the next Dalai Lama, whose soul, by tradition, is reborn as a new human to continue the work of relieving suffering. 

At 72, the Dalai Lama, who has lived in India since 1959, is beginning to plan his succession, saying that he refuses to be reborn in Tibet so long as it's under Chinese control. Assuming he's able to master the feat of controlling his rebirth, as Dalai Lamas supposedly have for the last 600 years, the situation is shaping up in which there could be two Dalai Lamas: one picked by the Chinese government, the other by Buddhist monks.

"It will be a very hot issue," says Paul Harrison, a Buddhism scholar at Stanford. "The Dalai Lama has been the prime symbol of unity and national identity in Tibet, and so it's quite likely the battle for his incarnation will be a lot more important than the others." 

"Tibet’s lamas have been banned from reincarnation without permission from China’s atheist leaders. The ban is included in new rules intended to assert Beijing’s authority over Tibet’s restive and deeply Buddhist people. 

“The so-called reincarnated living Buddha without government approval is illegal and invalid,” according to the order, which cames into effect on September 1, 2011.

The 14-part regulation issued by the State Administration for Religious Affairs is aimed at limiting the influence of Tibet’s exiled god-king, the Dalai Lama, and at preventing the re-incarnation of the 72-year-old monk without approval from Beijing. 

It is the latest in a series of measures by the Communist authorities to tighten their grip over Tibet. Reincarnate lamas, known as tulkus, often lead religious communities and oversee the training of monks, giving them enormous influence over religious life in the Himalayan region. Anyone outside China is banned from taking part in the process of seeking and recognising a living Buddha, effectively excluding the Dalai Lama, who traditionally can play an important role in giving recognition to candidate reincarnates.

For the first time China has given the Government the power to ensure that no new living Buddha can be identified, sounding a possible death knell to a mystical system that dates back at least as far as the 12th century. 

China already insists that only the Government can approve the appointments of Tibet’s two most important monks, the Dalai Lama and the Panchen Lama. The Dalai Lama’s announcement in May 1995 that a search inside Tibet — and with the co- operation of a prominent abbot — had identified the 11th reincarnation of the Panchen Lama, who died in 1989, enraged Beijing. That prompted the Communist authorities to restart the search and to send a senior Politburo member to Lhasa to oversee the final choice. 

This resulted in top Communist officials presiding over a ceremony at the main Jokhang temple in Lhasa in which names of three boys inscribed on ivory sticks were placed inside a golden urn and a lot was then drawn to find the true reincarnation. 

The boy chosen by the Dalai Lama has disappeared. The abbot who worked with the Dalai Lama was jailed and has since vanished. Several sets of rules on seeking out “soul boys” were promulgated in 1995, but were effectively in abeyance and hundreds of living Buddhas are now believed to live inside and outside China. 

All Tibetans believe in reincarnation, but only the holiest or most outstanding individuals are believed to be recognisable — a tulku, or apparent body. One Tibetan monk told The Times: “In the past there was no such regulation. The management of living Buddhas is becoming more strict.” 

The search for a reincarnation is a mystical process involving clues left by the deceased and visions among leading monks on where to look. The current Dalai Lama, the fourteenth of the line, was identified in 1937 when monks came to his village. 

China has long insisted that it must have the final say over the appointment of the most senior lamas. Tibet experts said that the new regulations may also be aimed at limiting the influence of new lamas."

Why I'm done trying to be "man enough"

Justin Baldoni wants to start a dialogue with men about redefining masculinity -- to figure out ways to be not just good men but good humans. In a warm, personal talk, he shares his effort to reconcile who he is with who the world tells him a man should be. And he has a challenge for men: "See if you can use the same qualities that you feel make you a man to go deeper," he says. "Your strength, your bravery, your toughness: Are you brave enough to be vulnerable? Are you strong enough to be sensitive? Are you confident enough to listen to the women in your life?"

Internal Flight - Estas Tonne 2016

We had a long story with this film. The first frames for this project were shot in the spring of 2013, already then we thought that we could quickly compile a fully finished version in a month but at the stage of editing it became clear that the film would have to work a long time still. The material was clearly not enough. From that period to the mid of 2016 in all our travels we filmed something for the "Internal Flight" project, it was always with us in our soul, everything that was filmed was considered through the prism of whether we could use it for the film or not. Finally, in the fall of 2016, we were able to sit down and in a couple of weeks finish the final version of the film that you now see in front of you. The project was written in two languages: Russian and English. Today we present to you the English version of the film, which has not yet appeared anywhere and has not been published anywhere, except for participation in festivals. You can see it on our channels on Vimeo: https://vimeo.com/214881201 And Youtube: https://youtu.be/qApaVLZmH1A Even at the stage of editing we made a short 3-minutes film, which immediately took a couple of prizes at festivals. The full version of "Internal Flight", over the past 2 months, has won 19 different prizes at festivals around the world and does not intend to stop at this. On the approach in the coming months the results of several more festivals where we hope to take some awards. Well, the most important thing! What is this 29 minutes movie about? It's a reflection on life and about finding yourself in this world. This is all that comes to mind in sleepless nights. Who am I? Why are we in this world? Why is this world created in this way and not otherwise? The text and music were born by the brilliant musician Estas Tonne and we are happy that we have become a part of this Creative Way. We did this project for our own pleasure and now we are downloading our many years of work in the open space of the Internet because we are sure that the film will be of interest to many. Especially for Paganel travelers, the most intelligent, well-read, interested individuals who discover the Universe together with us on travel! Have a pleasant viewing and good mood! Appreciate Life, Love, Travel! With all the best, Team Paganel Studio & Estas Tonne Music
