Although confirmation is pending from the office of His Holiness, we found this report today on the AFP web site, which is being widely distributed across the internet:
"His Holiness is feeling much better. As a result, he will be discharged tomorrow."
The Dalai Lama is to be discharged from a Mumbai hospital on Monday, four days after the exiled Tibetan spiritual leader was admitted with "abdominal discomfort", his spokesman said.
Last week, (Tenzin) Takhla, a spokesperson for His Holiness, said the 73-year-old Dalai Lama had cancelled all his engagements for at least three weeks in order to rest.
In recent weeks, the Buddhist monk had pursued a gruelling itinerary as he campaigned for improved human rights in Tibet while China hosted the Olympic Games in Beijing. He had recently returned to India from an 11-day visit to France, and has canceled trips to Mexico and the Dominican Republic.
On Saturday, the Dalai Lama joined Tibetans in a 12-hour fast to draw attention to the human rights situation in their homeland and pray for world peace.
