Dalai Lama admitted to Delhi hospital due to chest infection

The spiritual leader, who had returned to Dharamsala on Monday after meeting with youth global leaders in New Delhi on April 7 was brought to Delhi after he complained of discomfort.

His personal secretary Tenzin Taklha confirmed the spiritual leader had been flown to hospital in Delhi.

The Dalai Lama has lived in India since fleeing his homeland in 1959 after a Chinese Army crackdown. "He will be spending the next two to three days in the hospital under medical treatment".

The Buddhist spiritual leader, 83, is reportedly suffering from a chest infection and is in a stable condition.

The US Open Final: Who Will Make it?
The 34-year-old Swiss won the first two sets 6-4 and 7-5, forcing an injured and struggling Djokovic to retire in the third. If she’s at her best, then she’ll make it to the final and if she performs on the day the title will be hers.

China, which took control of Tibet in 1950, brands the Nobel peace laureate a unsafe separatist.

China, which took control of Tibet in 1950, brands the Nobel peace laureate a risky separatist and has said its leaders have the right to approve the Dalai Lama's successor, as a legacy inherited from China's emperors.

It is unclear who will succeed him when he dies, how that person will be picked or whether there will even be another Dalai Lama. "China considers Dalai Lama's reincarnation as something very important".

Asked in a recent interview what might happen after his death, the Dalai Lama anticipated a possible attempt by Beijing to foist a successor on Tibetan Buddhists. "They have more concern about the next Dalai Lama than me", he had said. "So that's an additional problem for the Chinese".
