5.0 out of 5 stars Buddhism and science, 5 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Quantum and the Lotus: A Journey to the Frontiers Where Science and Buddhism Meet (Paperback)
This is the best book I've come across on this subject. The authors are a Vietnamese scientist brought up amidst Buddhism, and a Buddhist monk with a great interest in science and a deep knowledge of Buddhism. For me it says science is a useful tool but for it to effect us in a deeply meaningful way, it needs a compassionate heart . The book also makes the point that Buddha's teachings are scientific and many of what we think of as modern discoveries were known to the ancients. As Geshe Kelsang Gyatso says in Modern Buddhism (free to download) "The instructions given in this book are scientific methods for improving our human nature and qualities through developing the capacity of our mind." And as Einstein said (quoted in the Quantum and the Lotus) If there is any religion that could respond to the need of modern science, it would be Buddhism."
