The 14th Dalai Lama is Tenzin Gyasto. He was chosen to be the next Dalai Lama because it is said as a small child of 2 years of age, he correctly identified his predecessor's belongings in a pile of toys. In recent years, China has invaded and occupied Tibet forcing the Dalai Lama to exile in India. He still continues to spread the Tibetan language and culture as well as human rights. He also is consistently spreading the word of the oppression faced by the tibetan people under China's rule and advocates for their freedom.
