"I am not joking about a female reincarnation if they should be a 15th Dalai Lama," said Tibet's spiritual leader during the the Lamrim teaching in Tashi Lhunpo Monastery, South India on December 21, 2015.

The Dalai Lama added that scientist have proven that women are more warm hearted, and that kindness and warm-heartedness are going to be the key factors in leading and molding the future world.

The Nobel Laureate also laughed off Chinese government's interference in reincarnation of Dalai Lama. He said, the Tibetans did share a special bond with the Chinese emperors in choosing Tibetan lamas at a time when the emperors were Buddhist followers and donors, but the present atheist government have no right to interfere with the Buddhist reincarnations.

He said China should begin the reincarnation search with Mao Tsedung and Deng Xaoping, if they want to look into reincarnation of the Dalai Lama.
