Dalai Lama was a title given to a high Lama (spiritual leader) in Tibetan Buddhism. In Tibetan Buddhist belief, each Dalai Lama was a reincarnation of the previous one, and all were regarded as manifestations of the bodhisattva Avalokiteśvara.[1]

In July 1996, The Guardian reported that the then-current Dalai Lama was given the Congressional Gold Medal of Honour by the United States, which China objected to strongly,[2] presumably due to the Tibetan sovereignty issue.
