His Holiness The 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso

"If you have a sense of caring for others, you will manifest a kind of inner strength in spite of your own difficult situations and problems. With this strength, your problems will seem less significant and bothersome. By going beyond your own problems and taking care of others, you gain inner strength, self-confidence, courage, and a greater sense of calm. This is a clear example of how one's way of thinking can really make a difference." — His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso

 

Our spiritual inspiration and guide, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso is the spiritual leader of Tibet and describes himself as a simple Buddhist monk. He was born on 6 July 1935, to a farming family in a small hamlet located in Taktser, Amdo, northeastern Tibet. At the very young age of 2, the child who was named Lhamo Dhondup at that time, was recognized as the reincarnation of the previous 13th Dalai Lama, Thubten Gyatso.

 

The Dalai Lamas are believed to be manifestations of Avalokiteshvara or Chenrezig (Tibetan), the Bodhisattva of Compassion and the patron saint of Tibet. Bodhisattvas are believed to be enlightened beings who have postponed their own nirvana and chosen to take rebirth in order to serve humanity.
