Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama, who has been recuperating at Max hospital since Tuesday, is doing well and is likely to be discharged soon. Tenzin Taklha, the Dalai Lama’s personal spokesperson, says, “Generally, his holiness is fine. Still on medication but he is doing very well and will be discharged.”
The spiritual leader was admitted to the hospital for treatment of chest infection. “This morning he followed his normal routine. He did some exercises. Basically, he has recovered but will continue his course of medicine,” Taklha added. Dalai Lama was said to be suffering from chest infection and cough.
The 83-year-old Nobel peace prize winner is based in Dharamsala and has been in permanent exile there for some 60 years along with thousands of others.
The 14th Dalai Lama’s office is very active on micro-blogging site Twitter that last uploaded his message on April 8. As usual his tweets carry great spiritual and philosophical messages. His tweet on Monday read, “Time is always moving on, nothing can stop it. We can’t change the past but we can shape the future. The more compassionate you are, the more you will find inner peace.”
