There have been many enlightened people sicne the Buddha. We all have buddha nature within us, it's just a matter of setting aside attachments and delusions to allow it to come out. I don't know if the Dalai Lama is enlightened or not. He would probably jaugh and say no. I believe he is more an embodiment of the bodhisattva of compassion.
Take care and gassho, Stephen
