Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama, who underwent an operation for removal of gall stones at a hospital in New Delhi, is in a stable condition and would be discharged at the end of this week.

The temporal head of the Tibetans is recovering well and is stable, Spokesperson of the Tibetan Government-in-Exile Tenzin Thakla said.

"Earlier, doctors had said that the Dalai Lama would be discharged by today, but they have now said he needs further rest and would be discharged by the end of this week," Thakla said.

The 73-year-old Nobel laureate was admitted to the Sir Ganga Ram hospital where he underwent a laproscopic surgery to remove stones in the gallbladder.

The Nobel prize winning Buddhist leader had last month undergone treatment at Mumbai's Lilawati hospital for abdominal discomfort.
