DHARAMSHALA, Aug. 6: After a hectic schedule in the upper reaches of northern India which saw the Tibetan leader His Holiness the Dalai Lama visit the remote regions of Zanskar, Nubra, Kargil and Ladakh in the span of just over a month, the Dalai Lama hinted that his engagements next year may be curtailed with his health and age in mind.

The Dalai Lama during the inauguration of a park at Juma Bagh in Leh on Friday said, “The Drikung Monastery at Kema Kyongru has invited me to visit next year, but we’ll have to see if I’m able to go. When it’s raining and humid in Dharamsala it’s good to come up to drier Ladakh. But, this old man is coming to Ladakh to rest, not to follow a hectic program.”

The octogenarian Tibetan leader said that he may opt to take it easier during his visit next year with consideration to his growing age. “Next year I’ll be 84. Would you prefer this old fellow to take things a little easier and live longer, or follow a hectic schedule and have a shorter life? You here and the people in Tibet all pray that I live long, but my body is only flesh and bone and if I tire it out it’s likely that it will shorten my life,” the Dalai Lama said.

The Tibetan leader admitted that his trip last year to Ladakh caused him much exhaustion. Consequently, on his physician’s advise, a trip to Botswana in Africa had to be cancelled.
