Reincarnation
Tulku
Dalai Lama means "Ocean of Wisdom).

Reincarnation means that after this body has died, your soul passes on into a new body and begins a new life.
A TULKU
A tulku is someone who chooses to be born again in order to continue some important work.
Searching for the next Dalai Lama
Once the Dalai Lama dies, the search begins. They look for a boy who was born around the same time the Dalai Lama died.
When they find the boy, they carry out tests. The boy is asked to identify personal belongings from the previous Dalai Lama.
Choosing the Dalai Lama
When China took control of Tibet (1959), the Dalai Lama was forced to leave.
The Head Monk of Tibetan Buddhism.

There have been 14 Dalai Lamas.
The current Dalai Lama is said to be a reincarnation of a past Dalai Lama.
The search can last for several years.
Monks often have dreams, visions (holy lake: Lhamo Lhatso) or follow the cremation smoke.
The Dalai Lama set up schools to preserved their language, history, literature, religion and music in DHARAMSALA.
