The way Dalai Lama comes across to others is very congruent with his true nature so "what he sees is what you get". The description below reinforces what you read about Tenzin Gyatso in the previous chapter.
Tenzin Gyatso has powerful emotional attachments to the past, his family, his childhood, places he associates with safety and security, and his beginnings. It is very important to The Dalai Lama to maintain a connection with his roots and heritage and keep family bonds strong. Loyal, devoted, and sentimental, The Dalai Lama tends to cling to whatever is dear to him - be it a person, a familiar place, or a cherished possession.
He is sympathetic, nurturing, supportive and very sensitive to the emotional needs of other people. Tenzin Gyatso likes to be needed and to care for others, and he often worries about the people he loves. Dalai Lama has a very strong need for a sense of belonging and acceptance, and much of his life centers on his home. He is more concerned about people and their feelings than with power, achievement, or position in society. Kindness, consideration and tenderness are more meaningful to Dalai Lama than any sort of honor the world can bestow.
He is primarily emotional and his views are often dominated by his feelings and his own personal, subjective experiences, rather than reason, logic or abstract principles. It is difficult for him to judge situations fairly and objectively because his personal sympathies and loyalties usually factor in. Dalai Lama takes things very personally and sometimes builds a wall around himself to shield himself from pain and rejection. Dalai Lama feels rather shy and vulnerable at heart. He also tends to be moody and experiences frequent mood swings. Dalai Lama needs to have a place and time in his life to withdraw, introspect, dream and replenish himself; otherwise Dalai Lama becomes cranky and unhappy with those around him.
Dalai Lama functions in an instinctive, irrational manner and likes to immerse himself in creative activities where he can express his feelings, imagination and instincts. The Dalai Lama often loves to cook, since it can be both creative and a way to nurture and nourish others. Dalai Lama also has a great affinity for music, because it evokes and communicates feelings that may be difficult or impossible to put into words.
His compassion, sensitivity, and imagination are The Dalai Lama's strong points. His faults include an inability to let go of the past and move forward, clannishness and prejudice, and a tendency for self-pity when facing hardship.
Dalai Lama has a clear sense of his own self and he therefore conveys a strong impression to others of who he is and what he wants. Assertive and self-motivated, The Dalai Lama can be a leader - one whom others look to for direction - but he competes and often clash with other strong individuals. Dalai Lama feels a need to be in control of his own life and he can be too self-involved, too immersed in his own interests, and oblivious to others at times.
The Dalai Lama's subconscious needs and feelings blend well with his conscious intentions and desires, therefore Dalai Lama is able to proceed in his life's pursuits relatively unhampered by internal resistance or inconsistency. Tenzin Gyatso's male-female relationships will reflect this state of internal harmony also.
Tenzin Gyatso has lofty aspirations but does not struggle or labor to achieve them. His self-confidence and inner harmony attract success and benefit him in an almost magical way. His optimism and cheerful generosity also win The Dalai Lama many allies and successes in life.
However he also has a more somber side, which keeps The Dalai Lama's optimism from becoming ungrounded or overblown. Dalai Lama tends to seesaw between his faith, vision and high aspirations, and his caution and realism (or fear!). He cannot and does not rely on good luck or grace alone, and he accepts the need for hard work. His skeptical or "somber" side is described below.
Realistic and practical, Dalai Lama sets goals for himself that are modest enough for him to actually achieve. He is able to tackle long, difficult projects and see them through, for The Dalai Lama possesses self-discipline, concentration and perseverance. Dalai Lama also has a strong sense of responsibility and is very conscientious about fulfilling his obligations. The Dalai Lama often does things because he feels it is expected of him.
While he is realistic and conscientious (or overly conscientious), as described above, Dalai Lama also has an otherworldly, dreamy, or mystically-inclined side, as described below.
He is very open and receptive to the spiritual, intangible, and subtle realms, and can easily receive or give conscious guidance based on his inner attunement. Dalai Lama takes many things for granted, such as the existence of an afterlife or the effects of subtle influences like aromatherapy, spiritual healing, etc. These things seem obvious to Tenzin Gyatso, whereas to many people they are a matter of conjecture or even illusory. Dalai Lama may not realize he has spiritual gifts because they come so naturally to him.
He may lack direction and drive and tends to compare himself unfavorably to others. The Dalai Lama alternates between caution and unrealistic expectations and lets others expect too much of him. But Dalai Lama plods forward steadily, reaching success later in life.
