Birthday of H.H. the 14th Dalai Lama on Thursday 06th July 2017, (Tibetan Lunar Calendar Month 2144 May. 13th): Tenzin Gyatso, is the spiritual and temporal leader of the Tibetan people. He was born on 6 July 1935 to a farming fameily, in a small village called Taktser in northeastern Tibet.
Dalai Lamas are believed to be the reincarnation of Avalokitesvara, an important Buddhist deity and the personification of compassion. Dalai Lamas are also enlightened beings who have postponed their own afterlife and chosen to take rebirth to benefit humanity. "Dalai" means "ocean" in Mongolian (the name "Gyatso" comes from the Tibetan word for ocean). "Lama" is the equivalent of the Sanskrit word "guru," or spiritual teacher. Put together, the title of Dalai Lama is literally "Ocean Teacher," meaning a "teacher spiritually as deep as the ocean."
