The 14th Dalai Lama meets Pope John Paul II in India. The Dalai Lamas, each a Buddhist monk, have been traditionally the spiritual and temporal leaders of Tibet, at least since the fifth Dalai Lama in the 17th century CE and until 1959, when the Chinese efforts to take over Tibet reached completion.
