    Apparently everybody else can still reincarnate freely…

    Though basicly they’re just putting a legal pretext in place to arrest anyone who claims to be a reincarnated monk.

    It’s one of the few smart things China ever did. Since reincarnation doesn’t really happen (i.e., can’t be scientifically proved), it’s not unreasonable to ban such stupid practices. It’s not any worse than banning polygamy, and yet no one ever complains about that ban except some Mormons.

    Wait, I’m confused. Are you saying that polygamy can’t be scientifically proven?

    The Chinese government seems to be making spiritual advancement. By forbidding unregulated reincarnation they are officially admitting that reincarnation (re-birth in a new body) is possible. Good so far. – What they don’t seem to understand is that reincarnation follows its own laws on which other human beings, especially those working for the Chinese government have no influence whatsoever. Just like no one was asking permission to be born as the child of certain parents. All our good and bad actions in this life determine the status of our next birth ( law of karma), so the Chinese government officials better make sure they care for the only thing they CAN influence in this regard: a better status for their own next birth by avoiding extremely bad karma activities like persecution of religious minded people which guarantees re-birth in hell. Lets pray for their souls. Feel love and compassion as taught by Lord Buddha. Om Mani Padme Hum.
