His Holiness the Fourteenth Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso

His Holiness the Fourteenth Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso (Tib. ཏ་ལཻ་བླ་མ་བསྟན་འཛིན་རྒྱ་མཚོ་, Wyl. ta lai bla ma bstan ‘dzin rgya mtsho) (b. 1935) is Tibet's spiritual leader and the seniormost figure in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition.

His Holiness was born in Amdo, in the north-east of Tibet in 1935. He left Tibet in 1959 following the Chinese invasion which began some years earlier. Since then, His Holiness has resided in Dharamsala, India, the site of the Tibetan government-in-exile. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989.

Sogyal Rinpoche writes[1]:

The Dalai Lama is, I believe, nothing less than the face of the Buddha of Compassion turned toward an endangered humanity, the incarnation of Avalokiteshvara not only for Tibet and not only for Buddhists, but for the whole world—in need, as never before, of healing compassion and of his example to total dedication to peace.
