The 14th Dalai Lama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989, for advocating peaceful solutions based upon tolerance and mutual respect in order to preserver the historical and cultural heritage of the Tibetan people.
Since the 1950s, the Dalai Lama, the religious and political leader of the Tibetan people, has led the campaign to end China’s occupation of Tibet. The Dalai Lama builds his Buddhist philosophy of peace on veneration for all living things and the concept of universal responsibility for the well-being of both humankind and nature. Despite brutal abuses, he has held fast to his belief in non-violent resistance and his desire for reconciliation and compromise. Receiving the Peace Prize gave the Dalai Lama the opportunity to put forward a plan for peace and human rights in Tibet. The aim of the plan was to initiate serious negotiations about the country’s future, which the Chinese government has steadfastly rejected. The Dalai Lama continues to live in exile in India.
