___ Lama (5)
I believe the answer is:
'lama' is the definition.
(Dalai Lama is an example)
This is all the clue.
(Other definitions for dalai that I've seen before include "The . . . . . Lama is Tibet's spiritual ruler" , ".... Lama is spiritual leader of Tibet" .)
I've seen this clue in the Penny Press, the King Feature Syndicate, The New York Times, the LA Times and The Wall Street Journal.
