Seminar on Buddhism and Science held in Spain
By Email[Friday, October 30, 2009 10:17]
Tibet House Foundation, Barcelona organized the second annual Seminar on Buddhism and Science from 23rd to 25th October. The main purpose of this seminar was to establish a link between the East and the West, say the organizers. “It was also to establish further links between wisdom and compassion which is present in all spiritual traditions of the world,” says Ven. Thupten Wangchen, the director of Tibet House Foundation.

This year´s presenters were Geshe Jampel Senge from Tibet Institute in Rikon monastery in Switzerland and Dr. Barry Kerzin, M.D. from Dharamsala. They taught Nature of the Mind according to Buddhism and Science; Neuroscience and Meditation; Compassion and Health; Happiness without Science; and several other topics.

All these themes were intended to stimulate reflection on how universal compassion can be complemented by scientific development. Furthermore the seminar intended to promote understanding on how to unify love and compassion with the deepest knowledge of reality.

“We anticipate that this 'Buddhism and Science' seminar will help further the understanding of the different views of the function and nature of the mind with altruistic intention to benefit all sentient beings and contribute to the universal peace in the world,” says Thubten Wangchen.

Ven. Thubten Wangchen thanked the two speakers for their insightful lectures which he hoped would benefit many people.
