His Holiness the Dalai Lama receives Templeton prize

The 2012 Templeton Prize has been awarded to His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. Each year the Prize is given to an individual for an exceptional contribution to affirming life’s spiritual dimension, whether through insight, discovery or practical works. On 14 May the Dalai Lama visited the UK to receive his award at a ceremony held at St Paul’s Cathedral. He received this distinction for his work on serious scientific investigative reviews of the power of compassion and its broad potential to address the world’s fundamental problems – a theme at the core of his teachings and a cornerstone of his immense popularity.
