Dalai Lama cancels Colorado visit due to medical concerns

The Dalai Lama canceled his planned visit to Boulder and the University of Colorado campus for next month because of medical concerns, according to a press release on the university’s website.

“His Holiness arrived in the United States earlier this week for a medical evaluation,” wrote a statement made by the Office of Tibet in Washington D.C. “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 Office of Tibet has offered to reschedule the visit, but there is not confirmation at this point that the event has been rescheduled.

Ticket costs will be automatically refunded to purchasers Oct. 5. Those whose credit cards have expired will be contacted by the CU Athletics Ticket office to make alternative refund arrangements.

The Dalai Lama planned to visit CU Boulder for talks and teachings Oct. 20-21. This would have been the first time this Dalai Lama visited Boulder since 1997.
