His Holiness among one of the World's most Admired

His Holiness the Dalai Lama is the seventh most admired man in the world, according to a new poll conducted by YouGov, an international Internet based market research firm.

The poll ‘world’s most admired 2015’ conducted in December 2014, gathered information from panelists across 34 countries, asking them simply: “Thinking about people alive in the world today, which [man or woman] do you most admire?”

These nominations were then used to compile a list of the 25 men and 25 women who received the most nominations and were nominated in at least 2 countries.

His Holiness the Dalai Lama has figured prominently in the list of admired people in all the countries polled except China and Nigeria. He was ranked exceptionally high in most of the European countries including France and Sweden, where he came top. His Holiness was ranked second in Norway and Germany, and third in Denmark.
