The Dalai Lama has launched a mobile app for followers to stay up to date with his travels and teachings. The exiled Tibetan spiritual leader, 82, already has a Twitter account with more than 16 million followers.

His free app, currently only available on iPhone, will hold news, videos, photos and information.

The Dalai Lama

  • His name is Tenzin Gyatso
  • Born in Tibet, he has been in exile for six decades since Chinese authorities suppressed a Tibetan uprising
  • A Buddhist, he is recognised as one of the world's leading religious figures and consistently preaches non-violence and tolerance for other faiths
  • He advocates self-rule for Tibet within China but is regarded by Chinese authorities as a "splittist"
  • In 1989 he won the Nobel Peace Prize
  • The TDT has been unable to find a photograph of him using a smartphone

Whether technology's effect is good or bad depends on the user. It's important that we shouldn't be slaves to technology; it should help us.

Coinciding with His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s arrival at Drepung Monastery, which was known in Tibet as a New Nalanda University, and Ganden Ngachö, the anniversary of Je Tsongkhapa, founder of the Gelukpa Tradition, the Office of His Holiness the Dalai Lama has released ‘Dalai Lama’, a new iPhone App now available for download at the Apple App Store (download from http://apple.co/2C5zpco).
