Traditionally, the Dalai Lama Picks his own Successor and he would tell his aids before his death, as to where to look out for a child, who will be his Reincarnation.
As per the Dalai Lama's official Website, the person who reincarnates does have sole legitimate authority over where and how he or she takes birth.
China Views the Dalai Lama as a separatist and who is working to spilt Tibet from China.
Beijing has spent billions of dollars to shatter the traditional Tibetan monastic order with the weight of Chinese factories. The dragon is very well aware that, its grip on Tibet can only be tightened if it gets the pick the next Dalai Lama, who would be Tibetan by blood and Chinese by Spirit.
