The Dalai Lama Documentary notes


The Dalai Lama (his Holiness)

Head of State of Tibet at 16 yrs - Leader of Tibetan Government in Exile. Now in his 70's, the 14th reincarnation of the Dalai Lama.

China occupation of Tibet lead to lots of Tibetans gaining asylum in India

60 monks escaped with Dalai Lama to Guyoto monastery, grew to be 500, they preserve Tibetan practises. Been in India for nearly 40 years.

Commitment 1 - Human Values, thinks all humans have the same values; secular ethics

Believed material things provide physical not mental happiness, more money = more worry. Real friendships are based on respect and concern. Simplifies Buddhist
