Press Release

August 27th 2008

His Holiness the Dalai Lama has been experiencing some discomfort in the past couple of days.  His personal physicians attributed this to exhaustion and have advised him to cancel his engagements for the time being and instead complete the remaining medical tests that began earlier this month in Mumbai.  

It has therefore been decided that all his schedules for the next three weeks, including the visit to Mexico and the Dominican Republic, are being canceled with immediate effect.
