changes in Tibetan hierarchy

The Dalai Lama's withdrawal as political leader of the Tibetan people has led to the election of a new political front-man -- Harvard Law School senior fellow Lobsang Sangay. The Dalai Lama will retain his responsibilities as spiritual leader.

  1. In a latter day interview recently, I noticed that the Dalai Lama was more openly .. critical (or maybe that is too strong a word but best that comes to my mind at the moment) of the Chinese. I guess he had to toe a line for many years as well. Anyway he seems like a nice man.
