'I believe in tolerance for all - so long as all have a good heart.' (The Dalai Lama)



Tenzin Gyatso was born in Tibet in 1935 into the Buddhist religion, and became the 14th Dalai Lama when he was just 4 years old. In 1950 China invaded Tibet and set about destroying the Tibetan way of life. In 1959 the Dalai Lama was forced to flee across the Himalayas to India where he became an exile. The Chinese soon took total control of Tibet and today life is still hard for the Tibetan people who have become prisoners in their own country. The Dalai Lama has set up a safe haven for fellow Tibetan refugees in Dharamsala in India where the Tibetan culture is still celebrated and where schools, hospitals and monasteries have been built.



Young readers will be amazed at the remarkable life of the Dalai Lama and his resolve for compassion, justice and peace. Now a truly international figure, the Dalai Lama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989.



Contains quotation panels, date chart, glossary and index.
