The Dalai Lama is the 14th and current Dalai Lama as well as the longest lived incumbent. Dalai Lama’s are the head monks of the Gelugpa lineage of Tibetan Buddhism. Born in 1935 to a peasant family in northeastern Tibet, the boy born Lhamo Thondup was anointed the 14th Dalai Lama at age 2, following Tibetan Buddhist traditions. He began his religious education at age 6, and at age 16 assumed full power as the political leader of Tibet.

He has travelled the world, imparting wisdom and spreading the message of love and peace. His way of life is simple, his message is kindness. He has written many bestselling and inspirational books, and is the recipient of countless honors from across the globe, including the Nobel Peace Prize, which he was awarded in 1989.
