Dalaï-lama : voyages annulés
Le dalaï-lama est exténué et a dû annuler deux voyages à l’étranger pour passer des examens médicaux, a annoncé aujourd’hui son bureau à Dharamsala, en Inde.
Le chef spirituel des Tibétains en exil, qui est âgé de 73 ans « ne se sentait pas bien depuis deux jours » du fait de son « épuisement », selon le communiqué.
Le dalaï lama a passé plusieurs mois par an à l’étranger, parcourant le monde pour faire entendre la cause des Tibétains et de leur culture.
Le lauréat du prix Nibel de la paix fait partie des nombreux Tibétains installés en Inde après la répression du soulèvement de 1959 contre le régime chinois.

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.
