The Dalai Lama

His Holiness the Dalai Lama was born on July 6, 1935, to a poor farming family in northeastern Tibet. At the age of two he was recognised as the Dalai Lama, the spiritual and temporal leader of Tibet, the fourteenth in a succession dating back six hundred years. At age six he began his lifelong training as a Buddhist monk. Since 1959, he has lived in exile from Tibet in Dharamsala, India. His tireless efforts on behalf of human rights, world peace, and basic human values have brought him international recognition.

He is the recipient of numerous honors and awards, including the 1989 Nobel Peace Prize and a U.S. Congressional Gold Medal. For more information about the Dalai Lama, including his schedule of teachings, visit: www.dalailama.com.

Geshe Thupten Jinpa has been the principal English translator to His Holiness the Dalai Lama since 1986. He is a Tibetan Geshe and holds a B.A. in Philosophy and a Ph.D. in Religious Studies from Cambridge University. He is the current President of the Institute of Tibetan Classics. He has translated and edited many books by the Dalai Lama.
