BERNE -- Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama has cancelled a visit to Switzerland in October after doctors advised him to cut back his travels and to rest.

The decision was announced late Saturday by the Dalai Lama’s office in Dharmsala, a north Indian hill town where he set up his headquarters after fleeing Tibet in 1959 in the wake of a failed uprising against Chinese rule.

The 73-year-old, who recently spent several days in a Mumbai hospital being treated for exhaustion, would also be cancelling other European visits.
