From supreme religious authority, to god-king, to Manchu pawn, to icon in exile, the role of the Dalai Lama has been in continual flux. In this program, Dr. Robert Thurman, Professor of Indo-Tibetan Buddhist Studies at Columbia University; the authors of The Last Dalai Lama and Tibetan Nation; His Holiness Tenzin Gyatso; and others investigate the intricate procedure of identifying a reincarnated Dalai Lama against the backdrop of Tibetan power politics and Chinese expansion, carrying the history of the Dalai Lama forward from the birth of Sonam Gyatso's successor to the life in exile of Tibet's 14th spiritual leader.
