The Dalai Lama says if he is to be reincarnated he will leave written instructions about the process, but that the issue is unlikely to come up soon. The Tibetan spiritual leader said in a statement Saturday, Sept. 24, 2011, that when he is about 90 he will consult Buddhist scholars to evaluate whether the institution of Dalai Lama should continue at all.
