Tokyo: The Dalai Lama, a spiritual leader exiled in Tibet, has said that Chinese leaders do not understand the diversity of culture. He said the ruling Communist Party’s inclination toward stricter social controls could be damaging. The Dalai Lama also said Wednesday that he wants to stay in India, where he has lived since 1959, rather than engage in a complicated politics between an officially atheistic Communist Party-ruled China and an ardently Buddhist Taiwan.

He has no specific plans to meet with Xi Jinping

At an online press conference hosted by the Tokyo Foreign Correspondents Club, Dalai, 85, said he had no specific plans to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping and declined to comment on Xi’s plans to meet a third term. The Tibetan spiritual leader said: ‘Chinese communist leaders do not understand the diversity of cultures. In fact, too much control will harm people. China maintains strict control of all religions and in recent years has launched a campaign for cultural inclusion targeting Tibetans, Turks, Muslims, Uighurs and other minority groups.

The Dalai Lama retired from politics in 2011
The Dalai Lama said he did not want to get into “local and political entanglements” but was dedicated to contributing to the cause of brothers and sisters in Taiwan and mainland China. “Sometimes I really feel that this ordinary Buddhist monk doesn’t want to get involved in complicated politics,” he said with a slight smile. The Dalai Lama retired from politics in 2011, but he remains a strong advocate for the preservation of the Tibetan tradition. China describes him as a supporter of Tibetan independence. The Dalai Lama, on the other hand, says that he is simply a custodian of the autonomy of Tibet and the local Buddhist culture.
