The Dalia Lama is choosen because that child is the
reincarnation of the previous Dalai Lama. The way
they find this child is that a series of omens,
signs, and visions usually point in the right direction, when they find
a possible reincarnate they may see if the child recognizes the
belongings from the previose Dalai Lama. The child
also has to be born within the right time range after death, about 49 days, the maximume time
somebody can remain in bardo. You can find lots of
info on him at www.tibet.com/DL/index.html. Those that see
visions and interpret the omens would likely be a monks or another spiritual person.
P.S. Bardo, I think that is the word, is a place between death and rebirth. Just to let you know.
