BBC: Dalai Lama 'may pick successor'

BBC NEWS | Asia-Pacific | Dalai Lama 'may pick successor': "The Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, says he is considering breaking with centuries of tradition and naming his own successor. Usually, following the death of a Dalai Lama, senior Tibetan Buddhist officials, guided by dreams and signs, identify a young child to succeed him. But the Dalai Lama said he feared China would try to influence this process."
