His Holiness the Dalai Lama to Join Prayers on 30 August 2008

Since arriving in Mumbai yesterday afternoon, His Holiness the Dalai Lama underwent some medical tests.  The doctors attending on him have given assurances that there is absolutely no cause for concern.  All that he needs is a good rest.

His Holiness will therefore join from Mumbai in the 12-hour fasting and prayers for peace and freedom that are being organized in Dharamsala and elsewhere on Saturday, 30 August 2008 by the Tibetan Solidarity Committee.
