Dalai Lama is a title given to the leader and high priest of the Yellow Hat sect of Tibetan Buddhism, who is considered to be the incarnation of the bodhisattva - a human being who has achieved an "enlightened" state - of compassion.
Tenzin Gyatso, the main subject of this presentation, is the 14th Dalai Lama and is thought of as a reincarnation of his predecessor - the 13th.
Buddhism originated from the Buddha, a prince in northeastern India, who abandoned the ruling class in search of a way to end the cycle of reincarnation - which was a core principle in Indian hinduism - and thus overcome human suffering.
What is the truth about Dalai Lama?

If the Dalai Llama knew something he would abandon Tibetan Buddhism, abandon monks, abandon the exploiting expensive cathedrals full of repressed monks acting as politicians, exploiting the poor as a false religion,, and admit his terrible Sharia law government repressesed the people of Tibet and exploited them to serve only the monks, just as much as Communism exploits them to serve the state. Neither Tibetan Buddhism, or Communism will ever be beneficial for all people, or operate a democratic form of government. The Dalai LLama is a very brainwashed man that was taken from a really stupid mother as a baby, who did not know her child would be programmed, brainwashed and misled in such a life destroying monastic, and terribly repressed way. If he knew anything he would no longer be a Buddhist exploiter of the highest unnatural order repressing his sexual desires to gain a spirituality he factually prevents with his own ignorance, programmed thinking as mere stupidity, just like any Pope. . . . .
I don't disagree with you,.
The Dali Lama is one of those pedestal-perched icons of virtue, along with Che Guevara, Nelson Mandela, Mother Teresa and others that most people have so fictionalized, through media representations, that they don't actually want to know the truth and focus on their own virtue instead of the illusions of exaggerated superheroes. I am curious how you happened to bring that up in this thread now?
Hello . I am also pleased to meet you here. I am not certain why I was moved to express myself except for the fact that human beings like the Dalai LLama, the Pope have not seen the falseness of the pyramid, or the hierarchical structure of exploitation that mankind has a profound habit of recreating in the external world, as a result of the way we were constructed previously by society. Our early upbringing, and schooling traditionally has been deeply flawed . I prefer Inquiry discussion and dialogue, to acceptance of any hierarchical authority, and that puts me in personally a strong personal affinity with thrive, with you and with your wife and whole new experiment in making, building, doing the groundwork, for a saner, better safer world for all of humanity, and all of our wonderful genetic cousins the animals. Even if we never meet physically on this planet we share the deep wonderful personal values of any good educator who does not need to impose his or her views on anyone forcefully, or without science, and logic, and compassionate reasoning. Thrive is one of the most important movements to come along in a very very long time, maybe since the beginning of inventing demons, angels, invisible benign masters and half mortal man gods. Continuity has outlived its usefulness in changing mankind psychologically with beliefs and systems . A new model that brings the creativity and power of the now into each of our lives, into our perception into our observations is already a fact in science. No hierarchy where the few exploit the many can survive the fact of anyone's instant perception when they see only the power of the individual cooperating with equals can change mankind's bad organizational habits of building more pyramids, where the tiny few lead the many to tragedy and more wars . .
