An expressive calligraphy of the word 'moustache' in Tibetan Drutsa script.
|The 13th Dalai Lama, Thubten Gyatso |
1876 - 1933.
His Holiness the 13th Dalai Lama sporting a rather dapper mustache; the fashionable look of a gentleman in the 19th century.
The 13th Dalai Lama predicted the 1959 Chinese invasion of Tibetan and announced that he would die early, in order that his incarnation successor, the 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso, would be old enough to act as a leader of the Tibetan people at the time of the invasion. He died a few months later in Lhasa, December 1933.
A long life prayer for the 14th Dalai Lama, born 6th July 1935.
