8 Dalai Lama Quotes That Will Change Your Life For Ever
The Dalai Lama is a world renowned religious leader. He is considered the supreme leader of the Buddhist community and is one of the most influential people in the world today. He is the successor of Thubten Gyatso, the 13th Dalai Lama and has retained this prestigious title since 1950. Named Tenzin Gyatso at the time of his birth, he was recognized as the one to fit into Thubten’s shoes. He is regarded as a ‘separatist’ and ‘wolf in sheep’s clothing’ by China for trying to separate Tibet from China. He initiated the famous ‘1959 Tibetan Uprising’, which unfortunately backfired. Several nations such as India, United Kingdom, The Soviet Union, Taiwan and the USA have supported him over the years. Fearing his life, the Dalai Lama sought shelter in India back in 1959 and has been residing in the country ever since. The Dalai Lama has settled in Dharamsala, situated in northern India and established the Central Tibetan Administration there. Following their leader’s footsteps, over the years, several Tibetan nationals settled down in Dharamsala and even started religious and educational institutions. Referred to as His Holiness, the Dalai Lama is known for propagating the teachings of Buddha across the world. His teachings on inner peace, love, relationships, life, happiness and kindness are notable.
