Known as Lhamo Thondup at birth, the 14th Dalai Lama was born on July 6, 1935, to a farming and horse-trading family in Amdo, Tibet.
When the search for the 14th Dalai Lama was on, among other omens the one that finalised the choice of the current Dalai Lama was when the head of the embalmed body of the 13th Dalai Lama turned from its original position to face the north-east, which was taken as a cue about the direction in which his successor would be found.
Though he was rechristened Tenzin Gyatso (short for Jetsun Jamphel Ngawang Lobsang Yeshe Tenzin Gyatso, meaning Holy Lord, Gentle Glory, Compassionate, Defender of the Faith, Ocean of Wisdom), it’s only when he turned 15 that he formally attained the position of the spiritual and political leader of Tibet.
