DHARAMSHALA, January 27: Tibetans in huge number on Wednesday joined the monastic community here at the Theckchen Choeling Tsuglakhang to pray for swift recovery of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, who arrived in the US for a prostrate treatment last week.

Doctors at Mayo Clinic on Jan. 22 said there were no major concerns regarding the Tibetan leader’s health and that he should recover fully after completing treatment.

Organized by the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) on Dalai Lama’s auspicious day, chant master of Gyuto Monastery led the prayer that was attended by the officials of the CTA, monks, nuns and the general Tibetan public.

“I know every Tibetan has been worried since the news of His Holiness’s treatment came out. He is our ultimate leader. On behalf of Kashag, we would like to convey that His Holiness is healthy and doing well,” the Tibetan Prime Minister Lobsang Sangay said while assuring the gathering.

“We contact Mayo Clinic on daily basis regarding the conditions of His Holiness and I would like to say to all the Tibetans, inside and outside Tibet, that he is doing fine and not to worry much.”

Sikyong also thanked Tibetans all over the world and especially those inside Tibet for carrying out prayers for their leader’s swift recovery.

Braving the Chinese crackdown, thousands of Tibetans, including monks and nuns, gathered outside Chakri Monastery in Tehor region in Kham to pray for the Dalai Lama’s health on Jan. 25.

“It is very important that Tibetans join in this prayer for our leader’s speedy recovery. Kundun (the Dalai Lama) is the most precious for every Tibetan and it is our first priority to pray for him and his long life,” said Tenzin Palden, a CTA staff.

Tibetan exiles around the world have also started prayers as per a circular issued by the CTA’s Department of Religion. The department also wished the Dalai Lama’s speedy recovery in a statement.
