HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO HIS HOLINESS THE DALAI LAMA!
Today, the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet turns 83. He is no longer the official head of the government-in-exile of Tibet, but is still very revered in the hearts of Tibetans worldwide. Tirelessly spreading a message of peace an compassion, he is presently in Ladakh. You can see photos and videos of the celebration on https://www.dalailama.com/
Happy Birthday to His Holiness!
I took this photo in 2006. As we were finishing the Kora around Mt Kailash, this man sent us blessings with his giant prayer wheel. Better than words!
