Statement

September 13th 2008

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 canceling 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.

I would like to thank all my friends in the many different countries of the world for your greetings on the occasion of my 80th birthday. I am grateful for the kind words you have expressed. As you know, my life is dedicated to the service of all sentient beings, and in particular I try to help my fellow human beings in whatever way I can. What unites all sentient beings is that we all naturally seek happiness and try to avoid suffering. Therefore, we have a collective responsibility to try to bring about the well-being and happiness of all living beings and help them overcome their suffering.
