'Chinese agents training some Tibetans to kill me'
"Some Chinese agents training some Tibetans, especially women, you see, using poison -- the hair poisoned, and the scarf poisoned -- they were supposed to seek blessing from me, and my hand touch," he added.
According to the paper, his aides had not been able to confirm the reports, but they had highlighted his need for high security.
Meanwhile, despite frosty relations with Beijing, 76-year-old spiritual leader said he believes China will change its hardline stance within his lifetime and adopt democratic reforms to safeguard its economic growth.
He also said Chinese leaders should use Buddhist logic to overcome their suspicion and anger, but confessed he struggles to control his own temper.
