The Dalai Lama has cancelled all of his events in the United States next month, including his visit to the University of Colorado, because of health reasons, according to a statement from the Office of Tibet in Washington, D.C.
“His Holiness arrived in the United States earlier this week for a medical evaluation. Upon completion of the evaluation, the doctors have advised that His Holiness take complete rest. As a result, His Holiness will be returning to Dharamsala, India, next week and will not be able to visit the United States next month. We deeply regret cancellation of the visit,” the statement said.
The Office of Tibet did not specify what medical concerns sent the Dalai Lama back to India, but it did offer to reschedule his U.S. visit in the future, health permitting.
The Dalai Lama was scheduled to speak at CU on October 20 and at the Tibetan Association of Colorado on October 21. Ticketholders will receive automatic refunds to their credit cards beginning October 5. The CU Athletics Ticket Office will arrange refunds for those whose credit cards have expired.
