The Universe In A Single Atom Summary


The Universe In A Single Atom: How science and spirituality can serve our world by His Holiness The Dalai Lama

In this rare personal investigation, His Holiness the Dalai Lama discusses his vision of science and faith working hand in hand to alleviate human suffering. Drawing on a lifetime of scientific study and religious practice, he explores the great debates and makes astonishing connections between seemingly disparate topics - such as evolution and karma - that will change the way we look at the world.

While he sees science and faith as 'complementary but different investigative approaches with the same goal of seeking the truth,' the fact is that the two have often been at the root of human conflict for centuries. The Dalai Lama challenges us to see that the benefits of opening our hearts and minds to the connections between science and faith are far preferable to perpetuating the divisive rhetoric that often surrounds them.

Now, as we face such troubled and uncertain times, the need has never been greater for this extraordinary man's compassion and wisdom.

The Universe In A Single Atom Reviews


With immense charm and lucidity, [the Dalai Lama] riffs on possible congruences between quantum physics or relativity and the Buddhist concept of impermanence and nothingness * Steven Poole, GUARDIAN *
Wise and compassionate * DAILY EXPRESS *
Some fascinating fresh insights ... Those who confuse the Dalai Lama's affability and simple-heartedness for a lack of intellectual rigour will be confounded by the strength of his reasoning, and no one can deny his argument that science should serve us all ... a fascinating account of an intellectual journey from the rooftops of Lhasa to the modern world * SCOTSMAN *
The lucidity of the writing is a joy, and conveys with simple elegance profound truths from both traditions. For those wishing to understand the nature of reality, this is an excellent work * THE MIDDLE WAY: JOURNAL OF THE BUDDHIST SOCIETY *
