31march20112002Dharamshala: - One of the worlds oldest and largest independent esoteric bookshops, Watkins Books, London, recently published a list of who they deem to be the 100 most spiritually influential people alive on which Tibet's spiritual leader His Holiness the Dalai Lama figures as number 2.

The list was published in their quarter annual magazine, the Watkins Review, in which the editors express that they believe such a list has been "long overdue". The Watkins Review also says it is their hope the list will "nurture the debates surrounding contemporary spirituality". The criteria for making the list were many, however, the Watkins Review only reveal the main three:

1) The person has to be alive
2) The person has to have made a unique and spiritual contribution on a global scale
3) The person is frequently googled, appears in Nielsen Data, and highlighted in throughout the blogosphere

Of the 100 people featured on the list a statistic provided by Watkins Review interestingly shows that 76% are male and that the median age is 67 years. Also on the list is the American born Tibetan Buddhist non Pema Chrodron, listed as number 39, and the venerable Sogyal Rinpoche who is listed as the 82nd most spiritually influential person in the world.
