I thought this story was funny. It is the edge of atheism that just makes me laugh. Atheist thinking naturally comes to this when it is unabated y Judeo-Christian-Grecian insights, which are based in a “Mind.”

I will also say that this will increase the division between the animals in control of China and their disdain for all things religious. I will warn you, the video that follows is GRAPHIC, this is your warning! I will also make note here that the shot Buddhists are left behind by their fellow pilgrams. Why? This is their Karma. See my post on Reincarnation.

China Bans Reincarnation

Aug. 20, 2007

The Chinese Communist dictatorship has now reached into the afterlife – authorities have banned Buddhist monks in Tibet from reincarnating without government permission.

In what Newsweek calls "one of history’s more absurd acts of totalitarianism,” China’s State Administration for Religious Affairs issued a statement saying the new law is "an important move to institutionalize management of reincarnation.”

China’s true motive, however, is to squelch the influence of the Dalai Lama, Tibet’s spiritual and political leader.

"By barring any Buddhist monks living outside China from seeking reincarnation, the law effectively gives Chinese authorities the power to choose the next Dalai Lama, whose soul, by tradition, is reborn as a new human to continue the work of relieving suffering,” Newsweek reports.

That means that after the death of the current Dalai Lama – who has lived in exile in India since 1959 – there could be two successors, one chosen by China and the other by Buddhist monks.
