The Dalai Lama is leading a ceremony to swear in a new Prime Minister of the Tibetan government-in-exile who takes over the Buddhist leader's political role.
Harvard-trained legal scholar Lobsang Sangay took the oath of office Monday and for the first time in Tibetan history holds a higher political authority than the Dalai Lama.
Sangay was elected in April by tens of thousands of exiled Tibetans to lead the administration based in the northern Indian city of Dharmsala.
The Dalai Lama says an elected official should lead government while he remains the Tibetan Buddhist spiritual head.
Sangay vows to follow the Dalai Lama's path seeking more autonomy for Tibet within China. China refuses to recognise Sangay's authority.
