Dalai Lama will receive the prestigious 1.1 million pound Templeton Prize in London on Monday for his contribution in encouraging common ground between science and religion.

The 76-year-old Dalai Lama will also announce how he is to spend the award money during the ceremony at St Paul's Cathedral where he will receive the prize.

The honour is awarded annually to someone who has encouraged common ground between science and religion — Mother Teresa was its first recipient.
