What's in Dalai Lama's mind on his birthday?

A few days ago, the Dalai Lama clique was quite engaged in celebrating the 75th birthday of the 14th Dalai Lama. Statements, congratulations, and congregations were bombarded by the bogus government, the bogus parliament, "Tibet independence" gangs as well as some western nosy parkers, to unscrupulously honor the Dalai Lama's "merits and virtues" and moreover to attack the Chinese government.

Among all the tricks, the "most creative" one should be granted to the religious office of the bogus government, who ordered Tibetans to fast or stop meat sales for a whole year to celebrate the Dalai Lama's birthday.

The funny thing was that on the same day, the Dalai Lama himself told an Indian media publicly about his taste over eating meat "So my own case, meat once or twice a week, otherwise vegetarian. So I tried to become a vegetarian but still difficult."

Apparently, it is not easy to be a follower of the Dalai Lama, because apart from paying "independence tax" and bowing to worship him, he has to suffer from struggling inside over the embarrassing issue that he must fast for the whole year for the Dalai Lama while "the top religious and political leader"himself can gorge oneself with large pieces of meat.

It seems that the Dalai Lama has lost his bearings by the lauds lashed by himself, he was especially impudent during an interview with India's New Delhi Television in Dharamsala on July 6. And only then, we could glimpse at some of his true thoughts. Now, I will make a brief introduction.

Firstly, the Dalai Lama claims himself as a "100 percent" Indian.

An ordinary person usually thinks of his hometown on his birthday. If we look at his profile, the Dalai Lama was originally born in Qijiachuan, Huangzhong County of northwest China's Qinghai Province, with a folk name as Lhamo Thondup. His father Chocho Tsering and his mother Dekyi Tsering were both purely local peasants.

In 1939, Lhamo Thondup was escorted by a troop sent by China's central government to Lhasa, as the candidate of the reincarnation boys of the 13th Dalai Lama. In 1940, the then National Government of China announced the approval of his succession to be the 14th Dalai Lama.

From that time till his escape to India after he failed in his armed rebellion launched in 1959, the Dalai Lama was fed by the Tibetan people for at least 24 years.
