Thekchen Chöling, Dharamsala, India - Alerted by reports in the press to former President Carter’s admission to hospital, His Holiness the Dalai Lama wrote immediately to the President to express his concern. He told him he prayed that he would fully and swiftly recover and soon return home.
“You have lived a truly meaningful life,” His Holiness wrote. “I have admired your good work for many years. It is really wonderful that you have remained so active, dedicated to providing humanitarian assistance to those in need. You are an example to us all of how to be of benefit to others.”
