The Dalai Lama Story: The Making of a World Leader

$16.00

by Andrew Crowe

At just two and a half years old, the Dalai Lama was chosen to become the spiritual leader of Tibet. At age fifteen, during a time of great upheaval, he took political control of his country: China was invading Tibet. Peaceful resolutions failed and in 1959, the 14th Dalai Lama found himself trapped in his own palace with the Chinese army poised to attack. Disguised, he fled with his family and many of his officials over some of the world's toughest mountain terrain. They finally crossed the border into India with the Chinese army less than a day's ride behind. Here is an inspiring and heroic story written especially for young readers. Andrew Crowe's vivid narration of the Dalai Lama's early life beautifully captures the spirit and personality of this 'world leader', as well as the mystique of the Tibetan ancient culture. The Dalai Lama Story is illustrated throughout with maps, photographs and drawings. Fifty years on, the Dalai Lama has never returned to Tibet where even to own his photo is forbidden and dangerous. In 1989 he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Despite the ongoing suffering of his people, the Dalai Lama continues to remind the world that 'hatred will not cease by hatred'.
