Dalai Lama Escapes China

 
Back in 1910, Thubten Gyatso (the 13th Dalai Lama) fleed from the Chinese and takes refuge in India.
 
The Dalai Lama is a high lama in the Gelug or “Yellow Hat” school of Tibetan Buddhism, founded by Tibetan religious philosopher Tsongkhapa (1357–1419). The name is a combination of the Mongolic word dalai meaning “ocean” and the Tibetan word meaning “guru, teacher, mentor”.
