ABSTRACT
The article presents information on how after the flight of Dalai Lama, priest of Lamaism, Tibet, China has been reinvented in Dharamsala, India, in 1959. His idea of exile to India worked. Dharamsala is not really a community, in short, but an experiment, in which the Dalai Lama and the people around him craft a new incarnation of Tibet. This is the place where the very notion of home is being reconfigured for the global age.
