He holds the entire Buddhadharma taught by Buddha and is able to preserve and spread it in this world in the most extensive and quickest way, for the benefit of us sentient beings. Not only that, but His Holiness also bears full responsibility for the welfare of the Tibetan people in particular, who have a karmic connection with Chenrezig.
Westerners, too, are able to meet His Holiness and receive his teachings and advice, not just once but many times. People in the West, nowadays, also have a connection with the Buddha of Compassion. But Tibetans also have a specific connection whereby His Holiness can guide them in not only a spiritual way by teaching Dharma but also as leader of the country of Tibet.
