Shoko Asahara[edit]

Amusing that all mention of the Dalai Lama's business with Shoko Asahara and Aum Shinrikyo is expunged. Very 1984.50.8.115.78 (talk) 08:29, 18 August 2015 (UTC)

Gyatso Last name[edit]

I suggest to add these informations to the text:

 Dalai is the Mongol word for "ocean". The title "Dalai Lama" was given by the Mongolian khan to the third Dalai Lama in 1578 (and posthumously to the first and the second Dalai Lamas). The third as well as the second before him of the Dalai Lamas had the Tibetan name Gyatso in their name, which also means "ocean", so the Mongol word Dalai was actually just a translation of this name. After that, all the Dalai Lamas have had the name "Gyatso" among their names (the present, 14th, is called Tenzin Gyatso, the 13th was called Thubten Gyatso, and so on).
 Gyatso is actually not a "last name" (surname), but just the second of two (first) names. The Tibetans generally don't have surnames like we have.
 So, in short:
 Tibetan "Gyatso" = Mongol "Dalai" = English "ocean".  — Preceding unsigned comment added by 201.0.121.169 (talk) 21:09, 27 August 2015 (UTC)
