Dalai Lama, Fifth
Tibetan: ngag wang blo bzang rgya mtsho
(1617-1682) He was installed in Gushri Khan in 1642 as the Fifth Dalai Lama. He reunified Tibet during his reign and enforced many changes. The political victory of the Gelukpa changed its destiny and it was the Fifth Dalai Lama who made Lhasa into the centre of the Tibetan world, with an influence reaching into Mongolia and Ladakh. He started the construction of the Potala in Lhasa. His death was kept a secret for over a decade to allow the Potala to be finished.
