For Tibetan Buddhism the exile in India and the west has meant not only survival, but the possibility of gaining followers from around the world. Globalisation, has however, accentuated internal weaknesses and contributed to demands for reform. The dispute relating to the appointment of the 17th Karmapa, reincarnate head of the Kagyupa sect, shows the difficulties of accommodating all Kagyupas under the same hat.
