The 14th Dalai Lama (Tenzin Gyatso) turns 72 today.

The spiritual leader who sought refuge in India has not set foot in his homeland for 48 years. This year he will be celebrating what is known as an obstacle birthday. According to the Tibetan beliefs an individual is likely to experience loss and suffering every 12 years.

The world’s oldest couple — a 103-year-old retired army soldier, Thakur Pyara Singh, and his 101-year-old wife Hansa Devi — have been invited to bless the Dalai Lama.

According to Tibetan custom, the blessings of old people wards off obstacles from a person’s life.

Join thousands in offering prayers and wishes to a man who has dedicated his life to promote the concepts of universal responsibility, secular ethics, and religious harmony.
