Tenzin Gyatso, the Fourteenth Dalai Lama, was born in Tibet on July 6, 1935. He was born into a small family of peasants. When he was 3 years old, Tibet recognized him as the reincarnation of the Thirteenth Dalai Lama. The Chinese invaded Tibet when he was 15 years old. Tenzin ascended to the position at that time. Then, he was exiled from Tibet and set up a government in India. Since then, he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, the Human Rights award, and more. The Dalai Lama’s goal is to bring peace to the world. He is a symbol of integrity, morals, and works for democracy and freedom for Tibet. The Dalai Lama does not believe in violence. He considers himself a Buddhist monk and is very humble. He is now seventy-seven years old.
