CWN Editor's Note: The Dalai Lama has said that his successor—believed by Tibetan Buddhists to be the reincarnation of the original Dalai Lamai—will arise in India, rather than in Tibet. The Chinese government has pronounced that no Dalai Lama can be accepted without the approval of the Communist Party. The 83-year-old Dalai Lama made his prediction as he accepted a Pacem in Terris award from the Davenport, Iowa diocese.
