Dalai Lama Enters US Hospital.

ROCHESTER, Minn. (AP) – The Dalai Lama plans a private audience with members of Minnesota’s Tibetan community on Wednesday in the same city where he has been receiving medical attention since last week.According to a statement from the Dalai Lama’s office, His Holiness arrived in the United States earlier this week and underwent a medical evaluation.

Tenzin Gyatso, His Holiness the 14th of Tibet, canceled his October. 25 visit to the University of Massachusetts campus on Friday, citing medical concerns. The Buddhist leader was already in Rochester at the Mayo Clinic for what his representatives labeled a routine checkup, but his U.S. appearances in October were canceled after doctors advised the 80-year-old take time to rest.

The message was posted on Dalai Lama’s official website on Friday afternoon, the person delivering it being His Holiness’ Indian secretary, Tenzin Taklha. “As a result, His Holiness’ planned October United States visit has been cancelled”, the statement said, apologising to all involved in organising the trip. Asked by the BBC’s Clive Myrie if there would be another Dalai Lama incarnation after he passes, the current Dalai Lama said yes, and that it could even be a woman. “I was really looking forward to seeing him talk”.

If tickets were purchased at the Mullins Center box office, the original ticket and form of payment must be presented. “We should be joyous that he is not going to come”, said Gardner, who now has earned the title Lama Thupten Dorje Gyaltsen Rinpoche. He had been scheduled to appear there on October 20. “Obviously his well-being is the most important thing”, said Jana Cunningham, a spokesperson for the U. The first was an event open only to students, faculty and staff, and the second appearance was a public teaching and talk on training the mind and compassion. The Tibetan spiritual leader, a self-declared feminist, stunned a BBC interviewer by saying that any female successor – or reincarnation – would be unsuitable if she was ugly.
