Bhaktisiddhartha Dasanudas



(...) In 1991 I had the good fortune to attend a retreat with His

Holiness the Dalai Lama at a remote lake in the Vermont woods. During

that retreat, which was only for monks, the Dalai Lama revealed in a

private audience that he was the last incarnation of the Dalai Lama.


"I am the last Dalai Lama," he said, "there will be no more Dalai Lama

after me." When I asked him why, he replied, "You are a disciple of

Bhaktivedanta. You should understand that now there is no more need

for me here. Tibetan Buddhism is the past; your instructions are for

the future. This is a very wonderful thing." Then he laughed. At least

the Dalai Lama has the wisdom to accept the inevitability of the

coming changes, and make a graceful exit from the scene in harmony

with the times, befitting his exalted spiritual status. (...)




Note: Intriguing. It could be verified probably only in person. I guess

writing to Dalailama's office would yield no result so I didn't bother. Jan
