Dalai Lama discharged from Delhi hospitalOctober 16th, 2008 - 3:36 pm ICT by ANI
New Delhi, Oct 16 (ANI): Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, who underwent a gall bladder surgery at a hospital here, was discharged today.
The Nobel Laureate underwent a successful surgery. He was admitted to Sir Ganga Ram Hospital last Thursday to remove gallbladder stones.
A smiling Dalai Lama waved to people as he left the hospital.
Pradeep Chowbey, the Dalai Lama’’s doctor, said that the Tibetan spiritual leader is hale and hearty.
“He is in very good spirit and very happy to have had his surgery done here. He is a person now cured of all his problems,” said Chowbey.
In August, the 73-year-old Dalai Lama was admitted to a Mumbai hospital and underwent tests for abdominal discomfort.
Doctors 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 travelling the world to teach Buddhism and highlight the Tibetans struggle for greater freedom in China. (ANI)
