Concerns about his health were voiced following news that he had been admitted to a private hospital in Delhi due to a chest infection in April.
In his address, while consoling his followers, some of who could be heard weeping occasionally, the Dalai Lama recalled a dream in which the goddess of glory, one of the eight Dharma protectors and the protector deity of Tibet, Palden Lhamo riding on the back of the Dalai Lama proclaims that he will live for 110 years.
The Dalai Lama also said that the other divinations carried similar foretelling, a statement from the Central Tibetan Administration said.
He also mentioned about the attention, support and best of medical services that were being provided to him by the Indian government.
“Tibetans have not forgotten me, and I will not forget you,” said the Dalai Lama, as he patted one of the followers on the back while recounting a moment when thoughts of the Tibetan people flashed through his mind.
The Dalai Lama has lived in self-imposed exile in India since fleeing his homeland in 1959.
