Oct 27, 2009‘Science & Buddhism Collide’: a talk on the prospects of collaboration between Buddhism & Science at CKSL on November 1, 2009 from Events Bangalore by darima

Buddhism has had a long history of intense probing into the true nature of reality both at physical and non-physical level. In this objective and the methodological rigor it shares a lot with modern science. Recently there has been rapidly growing interest among scientists to conduct research into Buddhist theories and practices especially those related to the mind and its development. The Buddhists, who likewise have shown great interest in learning from modern scientific discoveries, reciprocate this interest. As a result there is a constant dialogue between scientists and Buddhists these days through different forums.
His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama’s personal interest in science resulted in a unique in-depth dialogue between Buddhism & Science, which was institutionalized as Mind and Life Institute. As well as engaging personally in dialogue with Western scientists and promoting scientific research into Buddhist meditative practices, the Dalai Lama encourages Tibetan scholars to engage with science as a way of revitalizing the Tibetan philosophical tradition. He has led a campaign to introduce basic science education in Tibetan monastic colleges and academic centers.
The talk will be given by Venerable Geshe Nyima Tashi, who currently heads such a program – “Science Meets Dharma” at Sera Jey Monastic University. He is a distinguished faculty member of the University, who served as the head of “Philosophical & Dialectical Studies” department of the University in the past.
The talk will focus on the latest findings common for Buddhism & Science.

Source : Critical Mass Bangalore by Lavanya K

It is really funny that some of our malls and the bazaars have parking space for cars but cannot accomodate cycles in their parking lots. So, itz time to gather some mass at these malls and create some fuss.

So, here we go with our CMR for October –
Starting point : Bangalore Press Club, Cubbon park
Date: 31st October, Saturday
Time: 4:30 pm
Final destination: Forum Mall & Big Bazaar, Koramangala
Route: We’ll figure out before we start, as usual – very well planned 😉

The plan is to go to forum and big bazaar and try and shop – but before we do that, we need to park our cycles. And to our surprise, we find that we cannot park our ‘vehicles’ there – so what do we do now? We go in and write a suggestion – each one of us – for cycle parking. Since we somehow anticipated this, we also carry with us nice little posters and letters to give to the management.

Folks staying near Koramangala, do join us at forum at around 5:30 if you cannot join us at Cubbon park.

If you know of any other places where cycle parking is allowed/NOT allowed, please do update this link.

See you all at forum this weekend.
