WEST CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa. – The Dalai Lama, the Tibetan Buddhist spiritual leader whose long-standing engagement with multiple dimensions of science and with people far beyond his own religious traditions has made him an incomparable global voice for universal ethics, nonviolence, and harmony among world religions, has won the 2012 Templeton Prize.

Looks like the HHDL got himself some new Chogyam Trungpa glasses.
