ABSTRACT
An essay is presented on the extent of the influence of the Dalai Lama. The author explains that the Dalai Lama has become a universal voice of reconciliation and has won the acclaim of Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike. Additionally, his preaching of non-violence has been effective and he has enjoyed respect for his political goal. Despite the charm possessed by the Dalai Lama, he failed repeatedly to go home to his home in Tibet, China.
