Science and Buddhism

See how two of the world's most fruitful traditions for understanding the nature of reality and promoting human well-being modern science and Buddhism - come together. Lama Ole Nydhal provides an insight about the revolution which is taking place through modern physics, as well as philosophy. He shows how Buddhism, as a religion of experience, can extend our knowledge and integrates the diverse dimensions of our world.

Modern physics and life sciences have developed enormously in the last years. The natural meeting ground between science and Buddhism is thus at one of the most active research frontiers today; bridging the gap between external and internal descriptions.
