Geshe Namgyal Wangchen (1934-2015) was a Tibetan monk and one of the top teachers at Drepung Monastery, South India. He also spent ten years in the UK where he nurtured many Western disciples.
In this book he presents a comparison of modern scientific concepts of physics, biology and neuroscience with similar themes found in traditional Buddhist philosophy. The focus is primarily on the fundamentals such as atomic structure, light, electricity, evolution, genetic structure, human anatomy, and so on. He finds common ground between science and Buddhism as well as challenging scientific assertions from the perspective of Buddhist philosophy.
This book will be invaluable for those with a scientific interest in Buddhist philosophy.
