With such an air of destiny to his story, you would think that the Dalai Lama is a very serious and spiritual man. While this is true, he is also known to be incredibly personable and a fantastic public speaker. He captivates audiences all around the world, and he's not afraid to crack a joke every now and then, like he does in the video above. Try not to giggle at his silly response to an audience member's question.
Often considered one of the most influential and inspirational people in the world, the Dalai Lama is one of the most well-known spiritual leaders. Born Lhamo Thondup in 1935, in Taktser, China, he has been the Dalai Lama since the young age of 15, declared the 14th reincarnation of the Dalai Lama by religious officials at age 2. When he assumed the title, he was renamed Tenzin Gyatso and took political power of Tibet briefly before China invaded. Among his many other great works, he advocates for an autonomously governed Tibet.
