Summary

Tibetan Buddhism and Modern Physics: Toward a Union of Love and Knowledge assumes no technical background in Buddhism or physics as it clearly and engagingly addresses the complex issues of dialogue and collaboration between Buddhism and science, revealing connections and differences between the two. It strongly responds to the Dalai Lama's "heartfelt plea" for genuine collaboration between science and Buddhism.
