ABSTRACT
The article focuses on Tibetan Buddhist priest Dalai Lama XIV. The achievement of XIVth Dalai Lama is to have made of his predicament a hopeful global precedent. When he was born in 1935, fewer than 2,000 westerners had ever set foot in his remote and inhospitable country. Thanks to him, Tibet, China and Tibetan Buddhism are a cherished part of many a neighborhood as no Dalai Lama had ever ventured outside Asia. He has set up more than 50 flourishing Tibetan communities in exile.
