I really enjoyed it. Planning to read again along with "Tibetan Yogas of Sleep and Dream". There is so much valuable information to study and practice.

Recommends it for: those interested in the a comparison of Western and Tibetan Buddhist perspectives on the mind.
This book is a product of the 4th Mind & Life Institute Conference that took place over five days in October of 1992 in Dharamsala, India. It reads as a narrated description / transcription of the event. The Mind & Life Institute was established as a dialogue between science and Tibetan Buddhism, and is actively supported by His Holiness the Dalai Lama—who is an important figure in the book, both asking questions of the presenters and offering clarification on Tibetan Buddhist thinking o ...more

A very illuminating text on insights from science, psychology and Tibetan Buddhism on the mental and spiritual states we enter upon sleeping, dreaming and, ultimately, dying. With my slight education in science, I was able to follow the scientific findings pretty easily, but the references to Buddhist practices and theories had me pretty confused. It would certainly help to have a better understanding of Tibetan Buddhism, or any Buddhism, before diving into this read, but even still, I found it ...more

Fantastic read. A great way to observe current western philosophies and sciences collide with thousands of years of Tibetan Buddhist traditions. Lots of clear descriptions on the basics of psychology, neurosciences, philosophy and other western sciences. Sometimes the responses from the Dalai Lama are hard to understand as a beginner in studying Tibetan Buddhism but usually they are tailored to be better understood by the western mind. Use the glossary a lot it helps.

Admit it, you have always wanted to know what your mind is doing in these three instances. Here you have a buddist monk speaking with scientists about what goes on, a real look into what science and relgion can offer about the times we are not coherant.

Recommends it for: gothpaul
neuroscience, psychology et al v. h.h.the dalai llama. these books as conference reports can go either way, but this one is an engaging read. it helps if you like to read books with death in the title, like me and alvy singer.
Nov 26, 2011 Tanjila rated it it was ok  ·  review of another edition
Kind of misleading at first, the book is from the viewpoint of a scientist, with the Dalai Lama commenting every now and than. To me, it lacked any real Buddhist insights. Very tedious to read through a bunch of drawn out scientific discussion.

“It seems that scientific research reaches deeper and deeper. But it also seems that more and more people, at least scientists, are beginning to realize that the spiritual factor is important. I say 'spiritual' without meaning any particular religion or faith, just simple warmhearted compassion, human affection, and gentleness. It is as if such warmhearted people are a bit more humble, a little bit more content. I consider spiritual values primary, and religion secondary. As I see it, the various religions strengthen these basic human qualities. As a practitioner of Buddhism, my practice of compassion and my practice of Buddhism are actually one and the same. But the practice of compassion does not require religious devotion or religious faith; it can be independent from the practice of religion. Therefore, the ultimate source of happiness for human society very much depends on the human spirit, on spiritual values. If we do not combine science and these basic human values, then scientific knowledge may sometimes create troubles, even disaster....” 8 likes
