Talk: The Scientist & The Monk

A stimulating dialogue between neurobiologist, psychologist, and cognitive scientist David Presti as he interviews Khenpo Tsultrim Lodro, one of the most renowned scholars of Buddhist philosophical studies. Their discussion includes fascinating concepts in science, how they overlap and converge with what Buddhists have discovered over thousands of years in their own meditation.
