Most religious groups balk at the idea of a woman being in charge. In fact, the Catholic church recently stating that ordaining women is on par with raping children. Other Christian groups have split because a woman was allowed to do more than clean the sanctuary.
Not so with Buddhism. None other than the Dalai Lama has stated that there’s nothing in Buddhism that would preclude a woman from taking his place.
As you can probably guess from the title of this post, there’s only one hitch. While having a vagina is alright, been less than physically appealing to men is not:
“And I also mentioned in case Dalai Lama’s incarnation one female comes then must be very attractive female. So the very reason, you see more influence to others, an ugly female then may not much effective,” added Dalai Lama.
Now, if I were the Dalai Lama, I’d make it a point to come back as an ugly woman and state that the next male Dalai Lama has to be a clone of Naveen Andrews.
