London: Dalai Lama`s Tibetan monks are set to perform their chants in Glastonbury`s Green Fields.

The Gyuto Monks` Glastonbury upcoming gig follows their record deal with Universal`s Decca Records, in which all proceeds made from their album `Chants: The Spirit of Tibet` will go to their monastery in Dharamsala, north India, the Independent reported.

The monks currently touring Australia with the Dalai Lama are also set to create a ceremonial sand mandala at the festival - a traditional Buddhist artwork destroyed on its completion to mark the transitory nature of life.

The Dalai Lama has approved of the Glastonbury appearance, asserting that they have his full support.

The monks previously performed in the UK almost 40 years ago when they sold-out the Royal Albert Hall in 1973.

The monks have also been nominated for a Grammy Award in the best traditional world music category in 2011 for their album `Pure Sounds.`
