  1. Hi,
    Thank you for the many podcasts, which i enjoy listening to.
    I need to comment one of them though, the one about your problem with the
    Dalai Lama.
    You say that he could not be reborn, if he was enlightened.
    I cant say, if the Dalai Lama is enlightened or not, but in the tibetan buddhism
    We believe that highly realised ones, bodhisattvas, can decide if they want to be reborn or
    Be reborn or not. The reason some of them decide to be reborn is for the benefit of all
    Sentient beings.
    I hope this clear up the subject.

    Best wishes
    Tenzin drolkar

    1. Thanks for the note. I’m so glad that you listen! You are if course right about the Tibetan tradition. My comments are always based on the original teachings. I have a question for you: why did the Buddha choose not to be reborn? I’ve never heard the answer to that!
