What's the punishment for unlicensed reincarnation?

China tells living Buddhas to obtain permission before they reincarnate

Apparently if you’re a living Buddha (ie pretty much anyone, potentially) and you happen to reside in China you need a permit before you can reincarnate(!)

Um, yeah, that’s going to work out really well.. Think of the logistics much?

What if the permit is non-transferable? (being a bureaucracy you just know they’ll fsck that up)

How are they going to know? If you look at the concept properly there’s no guarantee you’re coming back as a human – could be a flea or a shark or an insurance salesman. Are the PRC going to ask them for their papers?

It’s like they’ve been taking lessons from the Australian Tax Office. ?

Good luck with *that*, ya tools ?
