The 14th Dalai Lama

His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, describes himself as a simple Buddhist monk. Born on 6th July 1935, he is the spiritual leader of Tibet.

Since taking asylum in India in 1959, His Holiness has become a global advocator of peace, compassion and happiness. In 1989, the Dalai Lama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his non-violence and peaceful approaches to help the people of Tibet. He also became the first Nobel Laureate to be recognized for his concern for global environmental problems.

His Holiness has travelled to more than 67 countries spanning 6 continents. He has received over 150 awards in recognition of his message of peace, non-violence, inter-religious understanding, universal responsibility and compassion. He has also authored or co-authored more than 110 books.

Since the mid-1980s, His Holiness has engaged in a dialogue with modern scientists, mainly in the fields of psychology, neurobiology, quantum physics and cosmology. This has led to a historic collaboration between Buddhist monks and world-renowned scientists in trying to help people achieve peace of mind.
