November 16, 2018
The Dalai Lama is a title that is given to the most important monk of the Gelug school, who becomes the leader of Tibetan people. The current, 14th Dalai Lama is Tenzin Gyatso. The goal of any Dalai Lama is not only to unite all Tibetan states and people within them but also to spread Buddhist values, beliefs, and traditions all over the world. The Dalai Lama represents the wisdom of the whole nation and often considered as the Pope of Buddhism, though this religion doesn’t have a hierarchy in general. Today, we want to refresh the memory of the Dalai Lama’s greatest quotes on love, happiness, and life itself to celebrate his contribution to our society. But first, let us tell a little bit more about his incredible life.
Tenzin Gyatso was born in 1935 and 5 years after was already chosen to be the next Dalai Lama. At the age of 15, he started his political (formal) and religious leadership over Tibet. During conflicts with China and the Tibetan uprising in 1959, the Dalai Lama decided to seek political refuge in India. There, he established the Government of Tibet in Exile, called “Little Lhasa,” and addressed the issue to the UN. The 14th Dalai Lama was named the child of Mahatma Gandhi for his devotion to peace and harmony within humanity. Since that time, he has traveled across the world and shared his wisdom with millions of people. In 1989, the Dalai Lama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, and today, we want to share a piece of his mind with you.
