(Newser) – The Dalai Lama was hospitalized today in India after complaining of stomach pains, BBC says. The Tibetan spiritual leader, who recently received a clean bill of health, canceled two international trips yesterday due to exhaustion. “There is nothing major to feel concerned about,” said his spokesman. The Dalai Lama, 73, has been traveling globally to press for greater Tibetan freedom.
