Many of you were expecting Tulku Ugen’s visit to Europe this year.
We had confirm his tour in our previous messages but it has taken a different turn of event. While tickets were bought, respective visas were obtained, travel insurance purchased Tulky Ugen started to suffer from acute pain beginning of June. Checking with doctors it was from Gall Stones in the bladder. It required a minor surgical intervention to remove the stones.
The operation was carried out straight away on June 7th. It all went well and Tulku Ugen was discharged on Monday 9th of June.He recovered swiftly and had to wait till June 12th for a final medical check. Doctors had confirmed his ability to travel and perform his daily duties as per normal.
Supposed to fly on June 14th for Europe, he had been asked to decide if under such conditions he was able to come to Europe and travel to meet you all without any risk to become a burden for the organizers and those of you receiving him, in case of relapse.
Since he was asked to decide and despite all the medical re-assurances and his dear wish to go, he thought it wise to cancel his tour for this year and apologizes for all the inconveniences caused to the organizers and those of you dearly waiting to see him.
Be assured that his health is well and that he is in full capacity to address his daily activities at the gompa.
