Short Description In recent times His Holiness the Dalai Lama has emerged as one of the foremost exponents of Ahimsa, i.e., non-violence, after Mahatma Gandhi, whom he regard his mentor, He combines in himself a mixture of dignity and restraint while dealing with the traumatic situation brought about by Chinese atrocities followed by the exodus from Tibet. His equanimity of mind and moderation from an early age sustain him in maintaining his balance and joviality.His forbearance and patience are phenomenal. He has been consistently pursing the twin objects of world peace and human happiness with transparent sincerity and dedication. Be it Tiananemen Square, Mongolia, Vietnam or South Africa, he feels one with those afflicted by strife and violence, for his concern knows no distinctions of race, religion or political affiliations. Speaking as simple Buddhist monk he pleads for tolerance, wisdom and understanding toe establish a just and peaceful world order. In his speeches and interviews he addresses his audiences with remarkable simplicity and directness, conveying in simple words his deep thoughts on wide-ranging subjects and issues of global concern. He carries his burdens lightly on his robust shoulders, and permeates the atmosphere wherever he goes with his delightful presence.
