The Dalai Lama : A Biography, Paperback / softback Book

The Dalai Lama : A Biography Paperback / softback

Part of the Greenwood Biographies series


The Dalai Lama 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.

The Buddhist spiritual worlds and the Dalai Lama's rarified role are engagingly and evenly presented. The Dalai Lama's story is revealed from his 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 clear historical overview of the Tibetan crisis after the Chinese invasion.

A timeline and glossary also supplement the text. Though the book is written especially for high school students doing reports, it will also be of immense interest to general readers.
