CELEBRATION OF HIS HOLINESS THE 14TH DALAI LAMA BIRTHDAY
His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, describes himself as a simple Buddhist monk. He is the spiritual leader of Tibet. He was born on 6 July 1935, to a farming family, in a small hamlet located in Taktser, Amdo, northeastern Tibet. At the age of two, the child, then named Lhamo Dhondup, 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, the Bodhisattva of Compassion and the patron saint of Tibet. Bodhisattvas are realized beings inspired by a wish to attain Buddhahood for the benefit of all sentient beings, who have vowed to be reborn in the world to help humanity. Buddhists all over the world celebrate the Dalai Lama's birthday, he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989. Though he routinely travels the world and meets with government leaders, he describes himself as a simple Buddhist monk.
