Lhasa -- Tibetan spiritual leader His Holiness
the 14th Dalai Lama said any Dalai Lama chosen by
China would have no moral legitimacy or
following. Asked whether he would appoint someone
in his lifetime, His Holiness told NDTV that he
would continue to guide his community in the
coming years. "I have not much concern about these things," His Holiness said.

"Sometimes I think the Chinese communists have
more concern about Dalai Lama's successor than
me. Silly, silly thinking, like that, so doesn't
matter." "On the practical level, no hurry," he
added. "I am quite healthy, so for another 10 to
20 years, I think, no problem," His Holiness added.
