SCIENCE and SPIRITUALTY

The nexus of science and spirituality is the intellectual high ground 

upon which the intuitive philosophical understandings of ancient

Taoism and Buddhism dovetail neatly with the cutting-edge

empirical observations of contemporary science.

INTUITIVE UNDERSTANDING OF THE ANCIENTS

There is that which does not belong to materialism and which is not reached by the knowledge of philosophers who fail to see that, fundamentally, there is no reality in external objects. The Buddha

EMPIRICAL OBSERVATION OF QUANTUM PHYSICISTS

THE FUTURE OF RELIGION?

“The religion of the future will be a cosmic religion. It should transcend personal God and avoid dogma and theology. Covering both the natural and the spiritual, it should be based on a religious sense arising from the experience of all things natural and spiritual as a meaningful unity. Buddhism answers this description. If there is any religion that could cope with modern scientific needs it would be Buddhism.” Albert Einstein

“The cosmos is within us. We are made of star-stuff. We are a way for the universe to know itself.” “The notion that science and spirituality are somehow mutually exclusive does a disservice to both.” Carl Sagan
