Dalai Lama


Tibetian Leader

At the age of 5, Tenzin Gyatsu became the 14th Dalai Lama, the spiritual and political leader of Tibet. After the Chinese invasion in 1950, he sought reconciliation between the Chinese and the Tibetans. However, in 1959, increasing Chinese repression led to an uprising against the Chinese. The failure of the uprising forced him and an additional 100,000 Tibetans to seek asylum in India. Since 1960, he has worked to free Tibet, bringing his message of peace and freedom to people all over the world.
