His Holiness the Dalai Lama of Tibet was born in 1935 and was enthroned as the fourteenth Dalai Lama in 1940. In 1959, following the Chinese suppression of the Tibetan national uprising, he was forced to move to India and currently resides in Dharamsala where the temporary headquarters of the Tibetan Government-in-Exile is located. The Dalai Lama has consistently opposed the use of violence in the struggle to regain the Tibetan people’s freedom while committing himself to finding a peaceful resolution. Awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989, His Holiness is today universally acknowledged as one of the world’s foremost spiritual leaders. Among his many books, the latest is An Open Heart: Practicing Compassion in Everyday Life.
