A study of Buddhism, focusing on the Dalai Lama’s influence.

This paper discusses the Dalai Lama and his involvement in the global appeal Buddhism has gained. The paper mentions some Hollywood celebrities that have embraced Buddhism. The intricacies of this religion are outlined in this paper. Several films and books are portrayed, illustrating the Dalai Lama and Buddhism.
The Dalai Lama said in Ethics for a New Millennium that perhaps the most significant obstruction to interreligious harmony is lack of appreciation of the value of others’ faith traditions”(222). His Holiness probably knows more about this than most religious leaders as he lives in exile from his homeland in Tibet. During his exile he has remained significant to Tibetans still in Tibet, as well as around the world.”
