The current Dalai Lama is the fifth of sixteen children of a farming family in the Tibetan province of Amdo. He was proclaimed the tulku (rebirth) of the 13th Dalai Lama at the age of three. On November 17, 1950, at the age of fifteen, he was enthroned as Tibet's Head of State and most important political ruler, while Tibet faced occupation by the forces of the People's Republic of China.
After the collapse of the Tibetan resistance movement in 1959, Tenzin Gyatso fled to India, where he was active in establishing the Central Tibetan Administration (the Tibetan government in exile) and preserving Tibetan culture and education among the thousands of refugees who accompanied him.
The Dalai Lama is a Nobel Peace Prize winner and advocate of non-violence. He has continued to seek 'genuine autonomy' for his homeland, a territory now claimed by China. The Chinese believe communism liberated the Tibetans from a feudal theocracy led by the Dalai Lamas and that Tibet has developed considerably under their rule. Others have claimed human rights abuses, as well as cultural and ecological destruction. This simple Buddhist monk is considered by some to be one of the world's enduring figures of struggle and compassion against oppression.
