Wonderful he is better's picture

Just so people know- the surgery he had was for the removal of gallstones. Not serious, but quite painful from what I know.

Wonderful he is better's picture

How wonderful that he is feeling better. Now everyone can see it was true that he was sick-not some political move as was distastefully suggested. And we can be thankful that it wasn't serious. And now the Dalai Lama can get back to touring, teaching Buddhism and talking about Tibet.
