Chenrezig Home – His Holiness the Fourteenth Dalai Lama of Tibet

His Holiness the Dalai Lama

Inspiration and Guide of the FPMT

His Holiness the 14th the Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, is the spiritual leader of the Tibetan people. He was born Lhamo Dhondrub on 6 July 1935, in a small village called Taktser in north-eastern Tibet. Born to a peasant family, His Holiness was recognised at the age of two, in accordance with Tibetan tradition, as the reincarnation of his predecessor the 13th Dalai Lama, and thus an incarnation of Chenrezig (Avalokitesvara), the Buddha of Compassion.
