His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, is the spiritual leader of the Tibetan people. He was born Lhamo Dhondrub on 6 July 1935, in a small village called Taktser in northeastern Tibet. Born to a peasant family, His Holiness was recognized at the age of two, in accordance with Tibetan tradition, as the reincarnation of his predecessor the 13th Dalai Lama, and thus an incarnation Avalokitesvara, the Buddha of Compassion. Forced into exile in 1959 by the Chinese communist colonization of Tibet, which continues to this day, he has continued to inspire the Tibetan people and also inspires millions of others the world over. In 1989 he received the Nobel Peace Prize. His unwavering advocacy for a non-violent and compassionate approach to conflicts throughout the world, including in our own personal lives, is the basis for true happiness.
In this special first time ever event, Tencho Gyatso, niece of the Dalai Lama reveals the Dalai Lama’s life in a stunning visual presentation woven together with her heartfelt narration. Tencho’s presentation is further brought to new heights by the accompanying and deeply moving music of Nawang Khechog who was a Kuger Tsampa (a hermit meditator) personally sponsored by H.H.the Dalai Lama, the first Tibetan Grammy Nominee and the most renowned Tibetan flutist in the world. His original music, which he always aims as a means to inspire non-violence and compassion, fits perfectly with the living compassionate life of the Dalai Lama. (see: https://www.nawangkhechog.com/).
