Who is the Dalai Lama?
His Holiness, the Dalai Lama, or Tenzin Gyatso - which is his monks name - was born on the 6 July 1935 to a poor farmers family in the Tibetan province of Amdo. A search expedition which consisted of specially chosen monks, sought and finally also located the two year old child. To make sure that they really had found the reincarnation of the XIII. Dalai Lama, they subjected the boy to several examinations which he all passed, and so it became evident that the child whom they had come upon was indeed the XIV. Dalai Lama, the political and spiritual leader of Tibet.
