St. Paul’s Cathedral, London, will be the venue on May 14 when Tenzin Gyatso, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, receives this year’s Templeton Prize. Worth U.S. $1.7 million, the prize is the world’s largest monetary award given to an individual. The international prize honours living persons who have made exceptional contributions in affirming life’s spiritual dimension.

The 76-year-old Dalai Lama’s compassionate world view has made him a global voice for universal ethics, nonviolence and harmony among world religions.
