Dalai Lama remains at Mayo Clinic after cancelling appearances.

Tibet’s exiled Buddhist leader, the Dalai Lama, on Sunday remained at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, for evaluation following a medical visit his office said was a routine annual checkup. Tibet.cn said late on Saturday that Achok Rinpoche, who had visited China several times in recent years, returned in May and was now living permanently in Ngaba, a heavily Tibetan part of the southwestern province of Sichuan that is traditionally strongly defiant of Chinese rule.

The Dalai Lama’s office said Friday in a statement on its website that he has cancelled his planned October U.S. appearances after doctors advised him to rest. Achok Rinpoche and Cui, who heads the United Front Work Department in Sichuan, which is in charge of co-opting religious groups and ethnic minorities, were “old friends”, the Chinese report said. During each trip Achok Rinpoche could see with his own eyes China’s amazing development, and that religious and ethnic groups were well-treated, the website said.
