Dalai Lama hospitalized, then discharged

"This morning (Monday) His Holiness (the Dalai Lama) was admitted to Apollo Hospital after complaining of a mild discomfort in one of his arms," Tenzin Taklha, a senior aide to the leader said.

DHARAMSALA: Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama was admitted to Apollo Hospital in New Delhi Monday and discharged later, his aide said.

He said the spiritual guru was discharged in the evening after tests. "He is now fine... no need to worry," he said.

The Dalai Lama will start his Europe visit Feb 8.

The Dalai Lama, 73, was admitted to Sir Ganga Ram Hospital in Delhi Oct 9, 2008, where he underwent a gall bladder surgery. He left the hospital Oct 16.

In August last year, the Dalai Lama was admitted to the Lilavati Hospital in Mumbai twice with abdominal discomfort. (more)

The Dalai Lama was taken to a hospital in India's capital for medical tests Monday after experiencing minor pain in his arms that was later diagnosed as a pinched nerve, his spokesman said.

The 73-year-old exiled Tibetan spiritual leader has had a number of health problems in recent months that have interrupted his busy schedule of international travel to teach Buddhism and highlight the Tibetan struggle for more freedom under Chinese rule.

"He has come down (to New Delhi) for some checkups after feeling a little discomfort in his arms," said his spokesman Tenzin Takhla.

After conducting tests, doctors at New Delhi's Apollo Hospital said the pain was caused by a pinched nerve, he said. (more)
