Dalai Lama may appoint a successor

The London Times Online reported today that the Dalai Lama is considering appointing a regent to succeed him in the event of his death (until his reincarnation is old enough to take over). The front runner for the position, according to the sources who spoke to the Times, appears to be the 17th Karmapa. The Karmapa was recently featured on the cover of Buddhadharma: The Practitioner’s Quarterly. Check out the magazine’s indepth article about him by Barry Boyce.
