.....At 76 years old, the 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, counters Beijing's
claims that they have the right to identify his successor with laughter and
"It is quite strange - as non-believers, totally non-believers, atheists -
showing interest about reincarnation," the Dalai Lama said in an interview
"I jokingly tell them: In order to be involved in my reincarnation, firstly,
they should accept Buddhism. Or religion. Or Buddhism. Then they should
recognize Chairman Mao Zedong's reincarnation. Deng Xiaopeng's
reincarnation. Then, they have reason to show some interest about the Dalai
Lama's reincarnation. Otherwise, nonsense!"....
