Abstract

While exploring convergences between Islam and contemporary science, I came across a recent book by the Dalai Lama1 which describes his interactions with Buddhism and science. In fact, the Dalai Lama is ideally suited to be a bridge between spirituality and science. His stature means that he does not merely read Thomas Merton, Carl Friedrich von Weizsacker, Karl Popper, and David Bohm - he meets them. His seven decades means that he spans the most significant changes that technology and science have made on human society.
