The Dalai Lama was due to visit the United States next month.

Due to health reasons his holiness, the Dalai Lama, age 80, has cancelled his U.S. tour.

 “His Holiness arrived in the United States earlier this week for a medical evaluation. Upon completion of the evaluation, the doctors have advised that His Holiness take complete rest. As a result, His Holiness will be returning to Dharamsala, India, next week and will not be able to visit the United States next month. We deeply regret cancellation of the visit.” ~ Office of Tibet

All of those who purchased tickets they will automatically be refunded starting the week of October 5th.

The Office of Tibet will reconsider rescheduling the visit when the Dali Lama recovers.

We wish the Dalai Lama a speedy recovery and many blessings.

Relephant:

“Every morning, recite this.” ~ Dalai Lama
