Who is the Dalai Lama?

Lesson outcome

In this final lesson on Buddhism, we will begin learning about reincarnation, which is the Buddhist notion of rebirth. We will learn about karma and the belief that a being's actions determine whether the rebirth is positive or negative. We will then go on to learn about the Dalai Lama, who is someone some Buddhists believe has reached enlightenment, but remains on Earth to help others reach enlightenment or Nirvana.
