DHARAMSHALA, August 20: His Holiness the Dalai Lama reassured board members of the Tibetan Association of Minnesota (TAM), who visited him at Von Ngari Monastery in Manali that he is healthy and will live long.

The 6-member executive board of TAM, in an audience with His Holiness on Monday, urged him to visit Mayo Clinic in the US for a health checkup.

The Tibetan spiritual leader thanked the visitors for their constant concern and told them he had started taking special care of his health and visiting a hospital in New Delhi which is also closer in case of emergency.

His Holiness had visited the famous clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, regularly in the past for annual checkup, discontinued now owing to the difficulty in long-distance travel in old age.

His Holiness mentioned a tumultuous flight to eastern India one time that got him introspecting about his health and the hopes of 6 million Tibetans that rest on him.

“Just as Tibetans never forget about me, I never forget about the 6 million Tibetan people.”

He recounted a dream he had a while ago in which the Tibet’s protector deity Palden Lhamo assured him that he will live till 110 years at least, he added, “Although I am 84 now, I am healthy and confident about living upto 111.”

He was briefly hospitalized in Max Hospital, Delhi in April this year for a chest infection that caused the Tibetans and well-wishers around the world to worry about his wellbeing.

Tibetans all around the world continues to urge for a less hectic schedule for their spiritual leader to leave room for much-needed rest.

His Holiness is going to rest at the monastery till August 28 after which he is set to travel to Mangalore.
