Titles will keep them busy and have no time to practice

In China and Tibet, in every school of Buddhism, of course there are “tulkus”. You know that “tulkus” means reincarnation, which means someone more important than others monk or nuns and that keeps the tulkus busy. The Tulku has naturally a lot of responsibilities that keep the Tulkus busy and maybe not to have time to practice. And same as geshes, khenpos and so on. All these kinds of people are very important people in the Buddhist society, but they are busier. They are busy with worldly stuff, not real Dharma. Therefore, we need to know if this is Dharma or not. If it happens to me: “Am I able to accomplish Buddhahood or enlightenment?” Because these responsibilities or titles of mine like Geshes or khenpos will keep me busy and have no time to practice, which is going opposite to the direction of the Buddha’s path.
