Dalai Lama discharged from hospital in New Delhi

April 12, 2019
NEW DELHI: Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama, who was admitted to a hospital in Delhi on Tuesday with chest infection, was discharged on Friday (12 April). He will be resting in Delhi for some more days before returning to Dharamsala, according to his staff.

He was brought to Delhi from Dharamsala in the morning when he felt uneasiness in breathing, according to Tenzin Takla, his private secretary.

He had attended an international conference in Delhi on April 6 and had returned to Dharamsala only on Monday.

The 83-year old Buddhist monk is admitted to a private hospital in south Delhi.

Addressing an international conference of educators in New Delhi on Saturday, he had said people must achieve internal disarmament first before seeking external disarmament. He wanted a subject of compassion to be made a part of school curriculum.

Last week he had also said he is not seeking independence for Tibet from China but a "reunion' of Tibet on the basis of mutually acceptable terms.

The 14th Dalai Lama had fled to India in early 1959 after the Chinese invasion of Tibet and has been living in exile in India at Dharamsala.
