THE DALAI LAMA, EXILED TIBETAN SPIRITUAL LEADER, SAID HE WILL NOT REINCARNATE IN TIBET OR ANY OTHER TERRITORY UNDER CHIINESE RULE

The Dalai Lama, the exiled Tibetan spiritual leader, said today he will not reincarnate in Tibet or any other territory under Chinese rule.

Speaking in Sarnath, in northern India, the Dalai Lama, who is 66, said that if Tibet was not free when he dies, his reincarnation would be born in some free country elsewhere.

He is the 14th Dalai Lama, and fled to India in March 1959 as Chinese troops crushed an attempted uprising in Tibet.

Observers saw Dalai Lama's statement as politically significant in view of the Chinese detention six years ago of a boy whom he had confirmed as the reincarnation of the Panchen Lama, Tibet's second-ranking religious figure. China has recognized another boy.

Observers said the Dalai Lama's statement now made it practically impossible for the Chinese to one day have a hand in deciding who the next Dalai Lama may be, or for an eventual candidate of theirs to have popular support among Tibetans.
