Mind and Life XXVI, Mind, Brain and Matter
In January, twenty of the world's foremost scientists and philosophers, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, and other senior Tibetan scholars gathered for a week in South India to discuss Quantum physics, neurosciences, the nature of consciousness, and the applications of contemplative practices in clinical and educational settings.
The meeting was an historical event as it was held in the presence of 8,000 monks who asked the scientists questions until late at night. As a result of this dynamic exchange and other recent developments, scientific education will now be included in the monastic studies in many Tibetan monasteries, the first major change in the curriculum in 500 years.
