His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, is both the Head of State and the spiritual leader of Tibet. His Holiness was called upon to assume full political power after China’s invasion of Tibet in 1949. He drafted a democratic constitution for Tibet in 1963 that was followed by a number of steps towards democratization of the Tibetan community. In 1987 he proposed a Five Point Peace Plan that envisaged Tibet as a zone of peace and harmony for all beings. In 1989 His Holiness was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his non-violent struggle for the liberation of Tibet.
