    China tells living Buddhas to obtain permission before they reincarnate

    Strange but true

    Tibet’s living Buddhas 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 comes into effect on September 1.

    Wow. This reminds me of another communist law from Yugoslavia -when it was Yugoslavia. The law stated explicitly "no miracles after Jesus." It was a "reformed" communist government which allowed religious practice with certain restrictions. The law was indeed invoked when some children began having visions of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

    Sorry, God, Mary -this is illegal in our country. (it was okay 2000 years ago, but we no longer allow it now.)

    LOL, but these are also very serious realities.

    That would make a great movie some day; a high lama is reincarnated in China . . .
