The Dalai Lama is hospitalised but is in stable condition
UPDATE: Friday August 29
The Dalai Lama is in stable condition in hospital.
Exiled Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama is in a stable condition and there is no cause for concern over his health, his aides and the private Indian hospital to which he was admitted said Friday.
The Dalai Lama has been admitted to hospital in India.
Arriving accompanied by a police escort at Mumbai's Lilavati Hospital, the 73-year-old Tibetan spiritual leader emerged from his car wearing his trademark red garb, waved to onlookers, and walked without assistance into the entrance.
On Wednesday, a posting on his Web site said the Dalai Lama had been "experiencing some discomfort in the past couple of days" that his physicians attributed to exhaustion and, as a result, would cancel his engagements for the next three weeks.
It said he would instead complete medical tests that were begun earlier this month.
The spokesman for Mumbai's Lilavati Hospital suggested that the visit was an unscheduled one.
"He comes every six months for a routine checkup. Around a month ago, a checkup was conducted, and he was in perfect health," Mohan Rajan told the Associated Press.
Hospital officials have expressed that there is no cause for concern. He must just be exhausted but his hospitalization is something everyone will want to keep an eye on.
