Office of HH Dalai Lama cancels trip to Europe

His Holiness the Dalai Lama is back in Dharamsala after undergoing medical tests and treatment following some discomfort recently.

The physicians have informed His Holiness that his general health condition is good but strongly advised him to curtail his travel schedule. In the immediate future the physicians have advised him to take good rest before resuming his schedule.

We are therefore cancelling his proposed travel to Europe in October. His Holiness very much regrets the inconvenience this will cause to the organizers of his programs as well as to those who were looking forward to participating in them. We hope everyone will understand the situation.
