Leader of Tibetan Buddhism whose seat of power was formerly the Potala Palace in Lhasa until those dastardly Chinese kicked his butt, so they could get their hands on Tibet's mineral wealth.
Now has a secret hideout in McLeod Ganj in Himacahl Pradesh, India (darn, given the game away!!!) where he preaches to his still faithful followers and western tourists.
With big bad China able to push everybody around with it's economic might, nobody of any importance wants anything to do with him except a few fading Hollywood actors trying to revive their flagging careers.
Keeps getting reborn everytime he pegs it - love to know how he does it - 14 times now!!!
When born 14th time around in Lhamo Dhondrub (pronouncable only after a few beers) on 6 July 1935, he got called Tenzin Gyatso. Of the other 13 before him, the fifth was heralded as the greatest and built the Potala Palace (which is not a place you can buy beer).
