Dalai Lama is the spiritual leader of Tibetan Buddhism and the head of the Tibetan government-in-exile. He was born in 1935 in northeastern Tibet and was recognized as the reincarnation of the 13th Dalai Lama at the age of two. He was given the name Tenzin Gyatso and was enthroned as the Dalai Lama at the age of four. In 1959, he fled Tibet to escape the Chinese occupation and has since lived in exile in India. Dalai Lama is known for his advocacy for human rights, non-violence, and environmental preservation. He has received numerous awards for his efforts, including the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989. Throughout his life, Dalai Lama has written many books, including “The Art of Happiness” and “The Book of Joy,” co-authored with Archbishop Desmond Tutu. He is widely respected for his teachings on compassion, mindfulness, and the pursuit of inner peace. Despite facing criticism and opposition from the Chinese government, he remains a revered figure for many around the world.
