How do other traditions (i.e. not the Tibetan tradition) view the Dalai Lama? Do they generally accept him as a reincarnation, or only as an important Buddhist voice, or not accept him at all?
And how do you view him?
I know that he himself has stated that he isn’t sure whether or not he’s a reincarnation of Avalokitesvara, as tradition has it. But he has said that he feels a powerful connection with both the Bodhisattva and Sakyamuni Buddha.
