His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama
Welcome to the official website of the Office of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. His Holiness is the spiritual leader of the Tibetan people. He frequently states that his life is guided by three major commitments : the promotion of basic human values or secular ethics in the interest of human happiness, the fostering of inter-religious harmony and the preservation of Tibet’s Buddhist culture, a culture of peace and non-violence.
The Foundation for Universal Responsibility of His Holiness the Dalai Lama
The Foundation for Universal Responsibility of His Holiness the Dalai Lama is a not-for-profit, non-sectarian, non-denominational organization established with the Nobel Peace Prize awarded to His Holiness in 1989. In the spirit of the Charter of the United Nations, the Foundation brings together men and women of different faiths, professions and nationalities, through a range of initiatives and mutually sustaining collaborations. The work of the Foundation is global in its reach and transcends nationalist political agendas.
This Foundation will implement projects to benefit people everywhere, focusing especially on assisting nonviolent methods, on improving communications between religion and science, on securing human rights and democratic freedoms, and on conserving and restoring our precious Mother Earth".
The Dalaï Lama Center for Peace and Education
“My religion is kindness,” says the Dalai Lama. The Dalai Lama Center for Peace and Education embraces this ethos and the Dalai Lama’s belief that each one of us has a responsibility to “develop the heart, cultivate compassion and work for peace within oneself and in the world.”
The Dalaï Lama Center for Ethics and Transformative Values (at MIT)
The Dalai Lama Center for Ethics and Transformative Values at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is dedicated to inquiry, to dialogue, and to the creation of programs that affect the ethical and humane dimensions of life.
