Learn about the history of the Dalai Lama with iMinds insightful knowledge series.
The term ‘Dalai Lama’ refers to a lineage of religious leaders in Tibetan Buddhism in the region of Tibet. ‘Lama’ is a word which refers to a Tibetan Buddhist teacher; while ‘Dalai’ comes from the Tibetan word for ocean. So the term Dalai Lama can be interrupted as “ocean of wisdom”; which shows the confidence Tibetan Buddhists have in their leader.
Buddha was a holy man born about five hundred years before Jesus Christ. The way of life he taught is still popular around the world to this day, with his followers known as Buddhists. The main facet of Buddhism is the undertaking of peaceful practices and renunciation to escape the suffering and rebirth of sentient beings. Buddhists around the world have been following this way of life for thousands of years.
