Dalai Lama promises to reveal reincarnation plans on his next birthday

In a video message broadcast from the United States, the Dalai Lama, celebrating his 89th birthday, has denied recent rumours about his health, saying he feels “physically fit” despite a recent knee operation. “I am recovering well and have no significant problems at the moment,” said the spiritual leader, who lives in exile.

The Dalai Lama, who was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989 and is known for his work in keeping the Tibetan cause alive from exile, has been the subject of speculation about his health, especially amid debates over his succession. Tibetans both inside and outside China are closely watching these developments, as the reincarnation process of Tibetan Buddhist monks plays a crucial role in appointing their leadership.

The Dalai Lama himself has promised to clarify questions about his possible reincarnation and where it might happen around his next birthday, when he turns 90. The statement comes at a critical time, as the question of his succession is central to Tibetans seeking greater autonomy or independence from China.

Meanwhile, the spiritual leader thanked his followers for their prayers and support, stressing that although he suffers from some ailments typical of aging, he is grateful for the affection he has received. Thousands of Buddhists and supporters from around the world are expected to join in celebrations and prayers for the health and longevity of the Dalai Lama, considered a key figure for the future of Tibet.
