Dalai Lama receives $1.7 million prize

LONDON (Kyodo) -- The spiritual leader of Tibetan Buddhism, the Dalai Lama, received the $1.7 million Templeton Prize on Monday for his help in promoting links between spirituality and science.

The award, which was handed over at a ceremony in St. Paul's Cathedral, London, is one of the largest in the world and follows the Nobel Peace Prize which the religious leader picked up in 1989.

The Dalai Lama said, "It is an honor for me to have been awarded the Templeton Prize. When I first heard of the foundation's decision, I really felt it was in recognition of my small service to humanity, in promoting nonviolence, respect and harmony among the world's different religious traditions, and encouraging greater understanding between modern science and Buddhist science."
