ROCHESTER, Minn. -

The Dalai Lama has made a stop at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester for a checkup.

The Post-Bulletin reports the 77-year-old Tibetan Buddhist spiritual leader was spotted Sunday speaking with people outside of Saint Marys Hospital.

Mayo spokesman Bryan Anderson confirmed on Monday the Dalai Lama was at the clinic for a routine medical examination and has since left.

The Dalai Lama has made regular visits to the Mayo Clinic in past years. He is scheduled to be in Madison, Wis., this week for a series of panel discussions at the University of Wisconsin as part of the "Change Your Mind Change the World" conference. The Dalai Lama also is scheduled to speak to the Wisconsin Assembly on Tuesday and give a public speech in Madison on Wednesday.
