In October 1998, the Dalai Lama's administration acknowledged that it received $1.7 million a year in the 1960s from the U.S. government through the "Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). When asked by CIA officer John Kenneth Knaus in 1995 to comment on the "CIA Tibetan program, the Dalai Lama replied that though it helped the morale of those resisting the Chinese, "thousands of lives were lost in the resistance" and further, that "the U.S. Government had involved itself in his country's affairs not to help Tibet but only as a Cold War tactic to challenge the Chinese."
In his autobiography "Freedom in Exile, the Dalai Lama criticized the CIA again for supporting the "Tibetan independence movement "not because they (the CIA) cared about Tibetan independence, but as part of their worldwide efforts to destabilize all "communist "governments".
In 1999, the Dalai Lama said that the "CIA Tibetan program had been harmful for Tibet because it was primarily aimed at serving American interests, and "once the "American policy toward China changed, they stopped their help."
Ties to India
The "Chinese press has criticized the Dalai Lama for his close ties with India. His 2010 remarks at the International Buddhist Conference in "Gujarat saying that he was "Tibetan in appearance, but an Indian in spirituality" and referral to himself as a "son of India" in particular led the "People's Daily to opine, "Since the Dalai Lama deems himself an Indian rather than Chinese, then why is he entitled to represent the voice of the Tibetan people?" Dhundup Gyalpo of the "Tibet Sun shot back that Tibetan religion could be traced back to "Nalanda in India, and that Tibetans have no connection to Chinese "apart... from a handful of culinary dishes". The People's Daily stressed the links between "Chinese Buddhism and "Tibetan Buddhism and accused the Dalai Lama of "betraying "southern Tibet to India". In 2008, the Dalai Lama said for the first time that the territory India claims as part of "Arunachal Pradesh is part of India, citing the disputed "1914 Simla Accord.
The Dorje Shugden Controversy reappeared in the Gelug school by the publication of the Yellow Book in 1976, containing stories about wrathful acts of Dorje Shugden against Gelugpas who also practiced "Nyingma teachings. In response, the 14th Dalai Lama, a Gelugpa himself and advocate of an "inclusive" approach to the teachings of Tibetan Buddhism, started to speak out against the practice of Dorje Shugden in 1978.
The controversy has attracted attention in the West because of demonstrations held in 2008 and 2014 by Dorje Shugden practitioners. A 2015 "Reuters investigation determined "that the religious sect behind the protests has the backing of the Communist Party" and that the "group has emerged as an instrument in Beijing’s long campaign to undermine support for the Dalai Lama". After the Reuters investigation revealed that China backs it, the Shugden group halted operations and disbanded.
In a May, 2013 a "Harris Poll of 7,245 adults across the five largest European countries and the United States, the Dalai Lama was tied with President Barack Obama with the highest levels of popularity, 78%, of all world leaders. "Pope Francis was the only leader that came close to the two of them, and in the USA alone the Dalai Lama topped the poll over Obama by 13 percentage points.
The Dalai Lama's appeal is variously ascribed to his charismatic personality, international fascination with Buddhism, his "universalist values, international sympathy for the Tibetans, and western "sinophobia. In the 1990s, many films were released by the "American film industry about Tibet, including "biopics of the Dalai Lama. This is attributed to both the Dalai Lama's 1989 Nobel Peace Prize as well as to the euphoria following the "Fall of Communism. The most notable films, "Kundun and "Seven Years in Tibet (both released in 1997), portrayed "an idyllic pre-1950 Tibet, with a smiling, soft-spoken Dalai Lama at the helm – a Dalai Lama sworn to "non-violence": portrayals the Chinese government decried as "ahistorical.
The Dalai Lama has his own pages on "Twitter, "Facebook, "Instagram, and "Google Plus.
The Dalai Lama has tried to mobilize international support for Tibetan activities. The Dalai Lama has been successful in gaining Western support for himself and the cause of greater Tibetan autonomy or independence, including vocal support from numerous Hollywood celebrities, most notably the actors "Richard Gere and "Steven Seagal, as well as lawmakers from several major countries.

Two characters in the animation series' "Avatar: The Last Airbender and "The Legend of Korra were named after him. "Avatar Aang's mentor "Monk Gyatso (The Last Airbender) and Aang's youngest son "Tenzin (The Legend of Korra).
Awards and honors
The Dalai Lama has received numerous awards over his spiritual and political career. In 1959, he received the "Ramon Magsaysay Award for Community Leadership.
On 16 June 1988 the Dalai Lama was awarded the Dr. Leopold Lucas Prize on behalf of the Protestant faculty of the "University of Tübingen by Professor Hans-Jürgen Hermisson who stated that the prize was awarded because of the Dalai Lama's important contribution to the promotion of dialogue between different religions and peoples as well as to his commitment to Tolerance and non-violence. The Dalai Lama donated the 50,000 DM prizefund to a German Charity active in Tibet.
After the "Tiananmen Square protests of 1989, the "Norwegian Nobel Committee awarded the Dalai Lama the 1989 "Nobel Peace Prize. The Committee officially gave the prize to the Dalai Lama for "the struggle of the liberation of Tibet and the efforts for a peaceful resolution" and "in part a tribute to the memory of Mahatma Gandhi" although the President of the Committee also said that the prize was intended to put pressure on China, which was reportedly infuriated that the award was given to a separatist.
In 1994, he received the "Freedom Medal from the Roosevelt Institute.
On 28 May 2005, the Dalai Lama received the "Christmas Humphreys Award from the "Buddhist Society in the United Kingdom. On 22 June 2006, he became one of only six people ever to be recognised with "Honorary Citizenship by the "Governor General of Canada. In February 2007, the Dalai Lama was named Presidential "Distinguished Professor at "Emory University in "Atlanta, Georgia; it was the first time that he accepted a university appointment.
The Dalai Lama was a 2007 recipient of the "Congressional Gold Medal, the highest civilian award bestowed by American lawmakers. In 2012, the Dalai Lama was awarded the "Templeton Prize. He later donated the entire prize money to an Indian charity, "Save the Children.
