The Dalai Lama remains at Minnesota’s Mayo Clinic after cancelling his U.S. appearances for the month of October.
A spokesperson for the clinic confirmed today that the 80 year old Tibetan Buddhist leader remains at the clinic in Rochester, Minnesota for a medical evaluation but released no other details.
The Dalai Lama’s office said on Friday in a statement that he has cancelled his planned October U.S. appearances after doctors advised him to rest.
Among the Dalia Lama’s cancelled appearances next month was a planned visit to the University of Colorado in Boulder as well as appearances in Salt Lake City and Philadelphia.
Pope Francis, meantime, is wrapping up his 3 day visit to the U.S. in Philadelphia today by celebrating a huge outdoor mass for more than a million people.
