Dalai Lama Hospitalized in New Delhi With Gallstone
By - The Associated Press
NEW DELHI - The Dalai Lama will undergo surgery to remove a gallstone, a spokesman for the Tibetan spiritual leader said today.
In August, the 73-year-old Dalai Lama was admitted to a Mumbai hospital and underwent tests for abdominal discomfort. His aides said at the time that he was in good condition but that doctors had advised him to cancel a planned trip to Europe and rest, saying he was suffering from exhaustion.
The Dalai Lama normally spends several months a year traveling the world to teach Buddhism and highlight the Tibetans' struggle for greater freedom in China.
