The Dalai Lama Uses Science, You Should Too!

March 29, 2012

science and happinessThe current Dalai Lama has been awarded the Templeton Prize which “honors a living person who has made an exceptional contribution to affirming life’s spiritual dimension, whether through insight, discovery, or practical works.”

We should all learn from the Dalai Lama. He has a firm grip on reality, is very spiritual, and loves SCIENCE. If the happiest man on the planet uses science, should we all? In the bio about him on the Templeton website, words associated with science appear many times. Here are a few:

long-standing engagement with multiple dimensions of science

has vigorously focused on the connections between the investigative traditions of science and Buddhism as a way to better understand and advance what both disciplines might offer the world.

he encourages serious scientific investigative reviews of the power of compassion

urging the international scientific community to raise public awareness of the impact of human activity on planet Earth

a love and respect for spiritually relevant scientific research

The Dalai Lama’s love of science is also evidenced in the Science for Monks program, created in 2001 to teach science in Buddhist monastic centers
