Tenzin Gyatso ist der 14. Dalai Lama.

Er ist buddhistischer Mönch, gilt als Linienhalter der Gelbmützen-Schule des tibetischen Buddhismus und befürwortet die Rime-Bewegung. Ab seiner Inthronisierung war er, wie alle Dalai Lamas zuvor, Oberhaupt der tibetischen Regierung. Aus diesem Amt zog er sich 2011 zurück, um seiner Funktion als ein geistliches Oberhaupt der Gelbmützen-Schule den eindeutigen Vorzug zu geben.

1989 wurde er mit dem Friedensnobelpreis ausgezeichnet.

Formelle Bezeichnung ist, in Anlehnung an die Anrede vergleichbarer religiöser Würdenträger, auf Deutsch Seine Heiligkeit bzw. bei direkter Anrede Eure Heiligkeit, Tibeter nennen ihn Kundün oder Gyelwa Rinpoche.

„Our own security is enhanced when peace breaks out between warring parties in other continents.“

— Далай-лама XIV
Context: Our own security is enhanced when peace breaks out between warring parties in other continents. But war or peace; the destruction or the protection of nature; the violation or promotion of human rights and democratic freedoms; poverty or material well-being; the lack of moral and spiritual values or their existence and development; and the breakdown or development of human understanding, are not isolated phenomena that can be analysed and tackled independently of one another. In fact, they are very much interrelated at all levels and need to be approached with that understanding.

„With the ever-growing impact of science on our lives, religion and spirituality have a greater role to play by reminding us of our humanity. There is no contradiction between the two.“

— Далай-лама XIV
Context: With the ever-growing impact of science on our lives, religion and spirituality have a greater role to play by reminding us of our humanity. There is no contradiction between the two. Each gives us valuable insights into the other. Both science and the teachings of the Buddha tell us of the fundamental unity of all things. This understanding is crucial if we are to take positive and decisive action on the pressing global concern with the environment. I believe all religions pursue the same goals, that of cultivating human goodness and bringing happiness to all human beings. Though the means might appear different the ends are the same.

„Because we all share this small planet earth, we have to learn to live in harmony and peace with each other and with nature. That is not just a dream, but a necessity.“

— Далай-лама XIV
Context: Because we all share this small planet earth, we have to learn to live in harmony and peace with each other and with nature. That is not just a dream, but a necessity. We are dependent on each other in so many ways, that we can no longer live in isolated communities and ignore what is happening outside those communities, and we must share the good fortune that we enjoy.

„Religion does not mean just precepts, a temple, monastery, or other external signs, for these as well as hearing and thinking are subsidiary factors in taming the mind.“

— Далай-лама XIV
Context: Religion does not mean just precepts, a temple, monastery, or other external signs, for these as well as hearing and thinking are subsidiary factors in taming the mind. When the mind becomes the practices, one is a practitioner of religion, and when the mind does not become the practices one is not. Deity Yoga (1987)

„Human happiness and human satisfaction must ultimately come from within oneself.“

— Далай-лама XIV
Context: Human happiness and human satisfaction must ultimately come from within oneself. It is wrong to expect some final satisfaction to come from money or from a computer. The Path to Tranquility: Daily Wisdom (1998) edited by Renuka Singh

„Some say I am a good person, some say I am a charlatan — I am just a monk“

— Далай-лама XIV
Context: Some say I am a good person, some say I am a charlatan — I am just a monk... I never asked people like Richard Gere to come, but it is foolish to stop them. I have Tibetans, Indians, backpackers, AIDS patients, religious people, politicians, actors and princesses. My attitude is to give everyone some of my time. If I can contribute in any way to their happiness, that makes me happy.

„I am convinced that everyone can develop a good heart and a sense of universal responsibility with or without religion.“

— Далай-лама XIV
Context: I believe all suffering is caused by ignorance. People inflict pain on others in the selfish pursuit of their happiness or satisfaction. Yet true happiness comes from a sense of inner peace and contentment, which in turn must be achieved through the cultivation of altruism, of love and compassion and elimination of ignorance, selfishness and greed. The problems we face today, violent conflicts, destruction of nature, poverty, hunger, and so on, are human-created problems which can be resolved through human effort, understanding and the development of a sense of brotherhood and sisterhood. We need to cultivate a universal responsibility for one another and the planet we share. Although I have found my own Buddhist religion helpful in generating love and compassion, even for those we consider our enemies, I am convinced that everyone can develop a good heart and a sense of universal responsibility with or without religion.
