I recently thought I heard someone saying somewhere how the Dalai Lama has pledged that, when he dies, he will transfer his consciousness to Patriarch Bartholomew, effectively making them one person, and uniting the Church of Constantinople and the Geluk school of Tibetan Buddhism, and that Patriarch Bartholomew has agreed to this. I know not to listen to every crazy thing people say but I was so disturbed upon hearing this that I thought I'd better ask about it here.

Jesus did go study Buddhism during the "lost years".  Perhaps there is a connection there.

The Buddhist Forum Dharmawheel is connected to Buddhism and pictures of the Dalai Lama.

Did President Erdogan give the Dalai Lama permission to reside in Turkey?

You recently "thought" you heard, "someone" say "somewhere".... the start to a great story.
