(CNN)The Dalai Lama, the globe-trotting Tibetan spiritual leader, will do no more traveling this year, a spokesman said, saying the 82-year-old is aging and “exhausted.”

“His Holiness is invited to different countries but he has cut down public engagements because of age,” said Sonam Dagpo, a spokesperson for the Central Tibetan Administration. “He is exhausted after teaching for a long period of time. Therefore a few commitments have been canceled.”

The Dalai Lama’s health is fine, Dagpo added, noting that the spiritual and cultural icon has made trips within India, where he lives in exile from his native Tibet.
