[Central News Agency] The cabinet department of the Central Tibetan Administration issued a position statement today on the issue of the Dalai Lama's reincarnation certification, reiterating that the Dalai Lama must entrust the implementation of the relevant activities, and has full confidence in the Central Tibetan Administration's responsibility at that time.
According to the statement, the Kashag, the Central Tibetan Administration, firmly believes that the Dalai Lama can live to be over 113 years old as predicted, and emphasizes that the certification system for the reincarnation of living Buddhas is a unique religious tradition of Tibetan Buddhism, based on the acceptance of the principle of past and future lives.

The statement said that regarding the issue of reincarnation, His Holiness the Dalai Lama has explained it many times since 1969, and he also made an official announcement on September 24, 2011, that the guidelines for future reincarnation will be decided by oneself, and no government or other individuals can interfere. .
Kashag also emphasized that religious activities related to reincarnation must be entrusted by the Dalai Lama. Kashag has full confidence that the leadership of the Central Tibetan Administration will accept the entrustment and take responsibility.
The statement also thanked many democratic countries around the world for their support of the Dalai Lama and related ideas, including the United States, and said that they would strive to win the support of more other countries with similar ideas.
The Central Tibetan Administration is composed of the Supreme Court, the Tibetan People's Assembly and the Kashag.
The Chinese government has implemented the "Administrative Measures for the Reincarnation of Living Buddhas in Tibetan Buddhism" since 2007. Kashag said in today's statement that Beijing has taken control of all religious affairs in Tibetan Buddhism, especially the identification of lamas or living Buddhas, for political purposes.
The Kashag accused Beijing of hosting various workshops, forums and talk shows, and spreading false propaganda on issues related to the reincarnation of living Buddhas in Tibet, including targeting the current Dalai Lama, and therefore decided to issue a statement "to put the truth right."
On the other hand, according to the official announcement of the Dalai Lama on September 24, 2011, where is the reincarnation?
How to be reincarnated?
How to authenticate, etc., is the only unique cause of the reincarnated person, and it is definitely not produced by others' coercion, oppression, or doing whatever they want.
The Dalai Lama added that it is extremely inappropriate for "political leaders" who have deliberately denied the existence of previous and subsequent lives to interfere with reincarnation certification, especially the reincarnation of the Dalai Lama and the Panchen Lama.
