Lhamo Dondrub, Dalai Lama, was born on 6th of July 1935 in a small village of Takster, in former Tibet. His family was involved in farming and horse trading business.
Now his birthplace and the rest of Tibet are in the Chinese province of Qinghai. Dalai Lama was one among seven surviving children.
He was declared to be the new incarnation and when he was going to be two years old he would become the 14th Dalai Lama.
Owing to persecution by the Chinese regime, Dalai Lama and his followers were forced to leave Tibet. They have been living in India for more than six decades now.
When he was two years old, he was given various relics, including toys some of which belonged to the 13th Dalai Lama. The boy correctly identified all the items which were owned by the 13th Dalai Lama. The boy began to shout that the toys and other things were his.
