Born on July 6, 1935 in Taktser, Tibet, Lhamo Dhondup was the 5th child in a family of 16 children, of whom only 9 survived. After long months of searching for the successor (reincarnation) of His Holiness Thubten Gyatso, the deceased 13th Dalai Lama, certain signs led the team of monks to the remote village of Taktser, and to the door of Lhamo Dhondup’s home. After the child recognized items belonging to the previous Dalai Lama, at the age of 2 years old Lhamo Dhondup was renamed Tenzin Gyatso, the 16th Dalai Lama. When the Chinese invaded the peaceful villages and cities of Tibet, His Holiness, on the advice of his political leaders, fled to India.
Since that time, His Holiness has devoted His life to spreading the Buddha’s teachings. Buddhism is centered on 4 Basic Truths teaching us that Life is not perfect; people are left unsatisfied trying to make life perfect; people can realize there is a better way to achieve fulfillment; and by living one's life through wisdom, ethical conduct, and mental discipline, people will reach enlightenment
