Meet the Author

His Holiness the Dalai Lama was born on July 6, 1935, in Taktser, China, into a farming family. He was designated the 14th Dalai Lama in 1937 and renamed Jetsun Jamphel Ngawang Lobsang Yeshe Tenzin Gyatso ("Holy Lord, Gentle Glory, Compassionate, Defender of the Faith, Ocean of Wisdom"). But his rights were exercised by a regency until 1950. He fled to Chumbi in S Tibet after an abortive anti-Chinese uprising in 1950, but negotiated an autonomy agreement with the People's Republic the following year, and for the next eight years served as nominal ruler of Tibet. After China's suppression of the Tibetan national uprising of 1959, he was forced into permanent exile, settling at Dharamsala in Punjab, India, where he established a democratically-based alternative government. He was awarded the 1989 Nobel Prize for Peace in recognition of his commitment to the nonviolent liberation of his homeland.

The Dalai Lama is the spiritual leader of the Tibetan people. He is the author of many books on Buddhism including The Four Noble Truths.
