Please visit the following website for the complete story:

The latest news about His Holiness’s condition, which his doctors say is not serious, can be found here:

Those of you who wish to recite the long life prayer on behalf of His Holiness can get the English version here.  You can also download the longer payer, “In Praise of Tenzin Gyatso, His Holiness the Fourteenth Dalai Lama“, which is in English and in PDF format. There is also a PDF available of the “Prayer for the Long Life of His Holiness the Dalai Lama” that has both a Tibetan version (written in western characters), as well as an English version.

Additionally, because His Holiness has a close connection with White Tara, Khensur Rinpoche recommends that people recite either of the following White Tara mantras as many times as possible:

Short White Tara Mantra: Om Tare Tuttare Ture Soha

Sligthly Longer White Tara Mantra:  Om Tare Tuttare Ture Mama Ayur Punye Jnana Pushtim Kuru Ye Svaha

For those of you who are interested, there is also a much longer White Tara Sadhana that you can recite which is available at the following URL:
