The Dalai Lama is a symbol of peace and of the non-violent struggle against the repression of the Tibetan people. Buddhist tradition holds that the cumulated knowledge of all the Dalai Lamas is passed on to the next one. His wisdom comes not only from the knowledge bequeathed to him through lineage, but also from his life experiences and depth of empathy for humankind. The Dalai Lama shares his unparalled insight, tolerance, and understanding with a wide-ranging scope.
