"His Holiness' serenity and humbleness is captivating," say the organisers. Above he blesses Isaac Tomatuk (Wabannutao Eeyou School) and Maïli Jade Ouellet (École Préville) on the stage of the 2nd Global Conference on World’s Religions After 9/11.

The 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso (shortened from Jetsun Jamphel Ngawang Lobsang Yeshe Tenzin Gyatso), was born Lhamo Dondrub on 6 July 1935. He won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989, and is also well known for his lifelong advocacy for Tibetans inside and outside Tibet. Tibetans traditionally believe him to be the reincarnation of his predecessors and a manifestation of the Bodhisattva of Compassion. More in Wikipedia.
