His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, is the spiritual

leader of Tibet. He was born in 1935 to a farming family. At the

very young age of two, he was recognized as the reincarnation of the

previous 13th Dalai Lama, but was not officially named as the next

Dalai Lama until age 15.  At age 23, he was awarded the

highest-level geshe degree, comparable to a doctorate in Buddhist

philosophy. 

The Dalai Lamas are believed to be manifestations of the Bodhisattva

of Compassion and the patron saint of Tibet. Bodhisattvas are

enlightened beings who have postponed their own nirvana in order to

serve humanity.  His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama has traveled the

world, advocating for the welfare of Tibetans, teaching Tibetan

Buddhism and talking about the importance of compassion as the

source of a happy life.  He has spoken about many topics, such as

the environment, economics, women’s rights, non-violence, interfaith

dialog, physics, astronomy, and reproductive health.  His Holiness

the Dalai Lama won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989 and the U.S.

Congressional Medal of Honor in 2007 among many other recognitions.

Around the world, institutions face pressure from China not to

accept him. In 1950, His Holiness was called upon to assume full

political power after China’s invasion of Tibet in 1949. For the

next five years, he went to Beijing for peace talks with Chinese

leaders.  However, in 1959, with the brutal suppression of the

Tibetan national uprising by Chinese troops, His Holiness was forced

to escape into exile and fled to India, where he established a

Tibetan government in exile. Although the Tibetan

government-in-exile has been largely democratic for decades, the

Dalai Lama still had the final say in every major political

decision.
