The 14th Dalai Lama, the spiritual leader of the Tibetan people, was born on 6 July 1935. He grew in a middle-class family of famers in a small Tibetan village called Taktser, where there were about twenty families. At birth, he was given the name Lhamo Dondrub. His parents Chökyong Tshering and Sonam Tsomo had nine children, he was the fifth child. Afterwards, the 14th Dalai Lama wrote in his biography that it was the poor childhood and the common parentage that contributed to the formation of his personality. If he were born in a reach family, would he ever be able to understand the common people and to become the spiritual leader of millions of people?
In 1937, the breaking point in the biography of the future Dalai Lama came. A special group of Lamas came in his small village. The aim of their visit was unusual – they were looking for the reincarnation of the 13th Dalai Lama. The Lamas visited the poor village Taktser not accidently: way back in 1909, the 13th Dalai Lama was there while making pilgrimage through the holy places, and then he said in the course of his visit that he would return to these beautiful places one day with great pleasure.
Lhamo Dondrub underwent a number of special trials: some things of the defunct 13th Dalai Lama, his toys and relics were shown to the two-year-old boy who had never been anywhere beyond his village, but said immediately as he saw those things: “It is mine, it is mine!”. Therefore, Lhamo Dondrub was recognized as the reincarnation of the 13th Dalai Lama. Thereafter he received a new name – Jetsun Jamphel Ngawang Lobsang Yeshe Tenzin Gyatso. The authenticity of the reincarnation was confirmed afterwards also with his dreams which were connected with the life of his foregoer. Later, his elder brother Thupten Jigme Norbu was recognized as the reincarnation of the high Lama Taktser Pinpoche.
The region of Tibet where the village Taktser was situated was controlled by China. The Tibetan Government negotiated with the local administration for a long time, until the new Dalai Lama could be taken away and sent to the study. In October 1939, the four-year-old Lhamo Dondrub wandered off the house and made his way to Lhasa, the capital of Tibet. There, he was enthroned. The ceremony took place on the 22 February 1940. One of the interesting facts of the Dalai Lama’s biography was his acquaintance with the famous Austrian alpinist and writer Heinrich Harrer, who lived in Tibet during 7 years. Some sources emphasize the belonging of Heinrich Harrer who was a member of the SS to the Nazi ideology.
From six to twenty-five years, Dalai Lama learned to become the “Doctor of Buddhist Philosophy”, the other name of which was Geshe-Lharamba. He passed his first serious exam at twenty-four. These were preliminary trials that took place in the three main monastery universities of Tibet: Drepung, Ser and Ganden.
The 14th Dalai Lama passed his main end exam in 1959 in the Lhasa Temple at the time of the yearly prayer festival Monlam. The trials were carried out all day long. In the morning, he was examined by thirty scholars that checked the perfection the Dalai Lama’s knowledge in logics. Then the second part of the exam followed which represented a philosophical discussion between the Dalai Lama and fifteen scholars. In the evening, there were exams in metaphysics und monkish discipline which were conducted by thirty-five scholars. The Dalai Lama passed the exams with excellent results, showed brilliant knowledge in the presence of more than twenty thousand scholars-monks and gained the highest degree having become Geshe-Lharamba, or “Doctor of Buddhist Philosophy”.
In the period of the escalation of the Tibetan-Chinese relations and invasion of the Chinese communists in Tibet in 1949, the Dalai Lama tried to establish peaceful relations with the Chinese Government. The struggle for independence of Tibet went on. China insisted on the belonging of Tibet to the Chinese territory. In 1950, the situation was escalated, and at the initiative of the extraordinary session of the National Assembly, the fifteen-year-old Dalai Lama was asked to take all the absolute spiritual and temporal power in the country. In November 1950, the Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso was enthroned as the spiritual and temporal governor of Tibet. In 1959, an anti-Chinese rebellion took place, after which he had to leave the capital of Tibet Lhasa. His asylum was India. Since then, Dalai Lama lives in Dharamsala (state Himachal Pradesh). There, the Tibetan exile government is situated.
Biography of the 14th Dalai Lama: mature years
In 2001, democratic election was carried out in Tibet which was the first one over the history of the country. With the electing of the politic leaders through the democratic election, Dalai Lama took up the post of the Kalon Tripa, i.e. prime minister, as the Dalai Lama said himself “half retired”.
During his spiritual and teaching activity, the 14th Dalai Lama received numerous prizes and rewards. In 2005, he received the Hessen Peace Prize for his contribution to the achievement of peace and mutual understanding between the peoples, as well as the Peace Prize of the fond Manchai and the prize “Sympathy and Inspiration”. In the same year, he received an honorary doctorate of the Rutgers University. In 2006, the Dalai Lama became the holder of the Ben Gurion Prize and was recognized with Honorary Citizenship of Canada, as well as with honorary doctorates at Santiago University and University at Buffalo. In the same year, he received an honorary doctorate in biology. At the end of 2006, he received the Kalmyk order White Lotus which is the most honorable high reward of Kalmykia.
The views of the Dalai Lama as a great scientist concerning the achievements of the modern science are quite progressive. He admits the possibility of existing of artificial intellect, or consciousness on the ground of computer technologies. Also, the Dalai Lama has an interesting opinion about the experiments in human cloning: he believes that such experiments are to be supported only in respect of individual cases when they can be helpful for a definite person, while a wide use of the cloning practice cannot be tolerated in any case.
Sathya Sai Baba
Sathya Sai Baba was born on 23 November 1926 in a small village in southern India called Puttaparthi. As his childhood playmates told, already in his childhood, Sathya Sai showed extraordinary capacities – he had excellent skills in levitation, materialized any fruits and sweet stuff for his coevals, stopped floods, and healed ill people. At five, he was called the embodiment of heavenly wisdom, as he showed profound spiritual knowledge, omniscience and perspicacity. He did not have to develop these skills in any way, for he possessed them by nature.
In May 1940, he announced about his mission of recovery of the Devine Law, the law of goodness and love, on the Earth. Since then, during more than a semi-centenary, Sathya Sai conducted this mission every day inspiring thousands of spiritual searchers from all over the world for selfless service to the mankind, perception of God, and self-improvement. During this period, the small village where Sathya Sai lived turned to one of the largest spiritual centers of the world with a university, schools, temples, hospitals, an international airport, a huge hotel complex where hundreds of thousands guests can be accommodated. Sathya Sai had tens of millions of followers who carry out programs of service and learning on the ground of the universal human values and spiritual development. It is impossible to embrace all the fields of activities of Sathya Sai. He was a saint, wonderworker, poet, philosopher, musician, Teacher, prophet. He conducted spiritual discussions and lectures which gathered hundreds of students, scientists, and statesmen, wrote books, controlled the work of universities and colleges where the students were taught on the ground of the universal human values. He superintended the work of the state-of-the-art hospital in Puttaparthi and other hospitals that deliver free medical care to all needy people. He supported the realization of the programs in water supply of the arid states of India, as well as programs in help for poor and ill people. He had temples, hospitals, schools, science centers, libraries built. In a small room at the temple in Puttaparthi, he accepted presidents of states, important politicians, famous scientists and artists, members of royal households and hierarchs of different religions.
Every day, he met the spiritual searchers that came from all continents and belonged to different confessions. Nowadays, the Abode of Peace in Puttaparthi is considered to be one of the largest sites of pilgrimage where tens of thousands of people gather every day, and at great feasts about a million of people. During such meetings, Sai Baba gave spiritual guidance, prophetic advice which bore evidence to his omniscience; he rescued miraculously incurable ill people, materialized the holy ash, protecting and healing mascots. The main thing is that he always brimmed love like a real sunshine. In this love, there was paternal care, maternal forgiveness, acceptance of each person as the greatest miracle, divine sympathy, and power of renewal. On meeting Sai Baba, there was a feeling that the whole love of all who loved and loves us now, is embodied in him, but multiplied manifolds. The flow of love was so intensive that one perceived the body of Sathya Sai as condensed love, concentration of the energy of sympathy. Such an experience leads to the birth of requited oceanic love, appeasement and to the deepest catharsis. The words of Sathya Sai are filled with beneficial love that grants transfiguration and discloses the prototype of the initial Word which is shown in numerous forms and symbols. His discussions were saturated with holy joy, inspiration and eternity music. They are the door in the world of happiness, enlightenment, and all-encompassing unity. We can enter through it in the New Heaven and began the endless travels through the land of revelations where God turn to the flow of our life, the self-knowledge to the light that illuminates everything, and the Truth to the breath of existence.
