He is both the living conscience of the Tibetan people and an internationally respected human rights symbol. His high-profile appearances and books have fueled the surging popularity of Buddhism in the United States and throughout the West. This new, up-to-date biography provides insight into the curious and winning personality of the Dalai Lama as a boy and his wisdom as a man. His story is revealed from early family life to his experiences in the world, his education as the 14th incarnation of the Lama, his exile in India, and his current struggles to help Tibet regain its independence from China. Especially helpful is the historical overview of the Tibetan crisis after the Chinese invasion. A timeline and glossary supplement the text. Though the book is written especially for high school students, it will also immensely interest general readers. Printed Pages: 192. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 74494
