By Dalai Lama
Galileo, Copernicus, Newton, Niels Bohr, Einstein. Their insights shook our belief of who we're and the place we stand on the earth, and of their wake have left an uneasy coexistence: technological know-how vs. faith, religion vs. empirical inquiry. that is the keeper of fact? that is the genuine route to knowing reality?
After 40 years of analysis with the various maximum clinical minds, in addition to a life of meditative, non secular, and philosophic examine, the Dalai Lama offers an excellent research of why all avenues of inquiry—scientific in addition to spiritual—must be pursued as a way to arrive at an entire photograph of the reality. via an exam of Darwinism and karma, quantum mechanics and philosophical perception into the character of truth, neurobiology and the learn of realization, the Dalai Lama attracts major parallels among contemplative and clinical examinations of reality.
This breathtakingly own exam is a tribute to the Dalai Lama’s teachers—both of technological know-how and spirituality. The legacy of this booklet is a imaginative and prescient of the realm within which our various methods to figuring out ourselves, our universe, and each other might be introduced jointly within the carrier of humanity.
