Abstract A record of the meeting between the Dalai Lama and scientists at the recent prestigious MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) conference, including both the papers given at the conference and the animated discussion and debate that followed.
Is there any substance to monks' claims that meditation can give them astonishing memories? Is there any neuroscientific evidence that meditation can help your attention, your power of thought, and control or even eliminate negative emotions? Are Buddhists right to make compassion a fundamental human emotion, and Western scientists wrong to have neglected it? Can Buddhism teach science that even the most instinctive emotions can be trained? The Dalai Lama at MIT shows scientists finding startling support for some Buddhist claims. Those in white coats and those in saffron and orange robes agree that joining forces could bring new light to the study of human minds.
"A cornucopia of riches for anyone interested in what is known and yet to be known about the nature of mind. The dialogues weave a tapestry of perspectives, insights, good-natured banter, and ideas for new studies that will fascinate not only scientists, but anyone interested in meditation and mind-body interactions." Jon Kabat-Zinn.
