10-G

Ten random things: May 15

Ten Dalai Lamas:

  1. Khendrup Gyatso, eleventh Dalai Lama
  2. Gendun Gyatso, second Dalai Lama
  3. Thubten Gyatso, thirteenth Dalai Lama
  4. Yonten Gyatso, fourth Dalai Lama
  5. Lungtok Gyatso, ninth Dalai Lama
  6. Jamphel Gyatso, eighth Dalai Lama
  7. Tenzin Gyatso, fourteenth and current Dalai Lama
  8. Tsultrim Gyatso, tenth Dalai Lama
  9. Lobsang Gyatso, fifth Dalai Lama
  10. Tsangyang Gyatso, sixth Dalai Lama

The Dalai Lama is, according to Tibetan Buddhists, the reincarnation of the Avalokiteśvara ("Chenrezig" in Tibetan), the bodhisattva of compassion. And speaking of bodhisattvas, here's an entertaining Brian Setzer Orchestra cover of the Steely Dan song "Bodhisattva," from the soundtrack to the movie Me, Myself and Irene.
