Spiritual head of Tibetan Buddhists, the Dalai Lama

S.S. o Dalai Lama

The Dalai Lama is the guru of Tibetan Buddhists, but he is more: he travels the world speaking for peace and negotiation. He is like a Pope inasmuch as he uses his position to try to make men see a higher goal.

Because the Chinese have tried to squash Tibetan Buddhist culture, the Dalai Lama lives in exile. When he is not traveling, he lives in India.
