Dharamsala, Oct 11 : Scores of Tibetans in exile gathered at a monastery in Dharamsala and prayed for long life and speedy recovery of their spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama

Lighting lamps, the monks chanted hymns to pray for the speedy recovery of their spiritual leader.

"These days his holiness is not well. This is the second time he was admitted in a hospital in Delhi. Last time, he was admitted in Mumbai. We are wishing for his long life," said Tserab, a monk.

The Dalai Lama was admitted to hospital here on Thursday, days after a medical check-up cleared him to resume foreign travel.

In August, the 73-year-old Dalai Lama was admitted to a Mumbai hospital and underwent tests for abdominal discomfort.

Doctors advised him to cancel a planned trip to Europe and rest, saying he was suffering from exhaustion.

The Dalai Lama normally travels around the world to teach Buddhism and highlight the Tibetans'' struggle for greater freedom in China.
