About His Holiness Tenzin Gyatso the Dalai Lama

His Holiness the Dalai Lama is the 14th and current Dalai Lama. In 1959, after the collapse of the Tibetan resistance, the Dalai Lama fled to India where he was active in establishing the Tibetan government in exile and seeking to preserve Tibetan culture and education among the thousands of refugees who accompanied him. A charismatic figure and noted public speaker, His Holiness is the first Dalai Lama to travel to the West. As a result, he has helped spread Buddhism and promote the concepts of universal responsibility, secular ethics, and religious harmony
