I watch this video with much respect for His Holiness The Dalai Lama. My respect for HH comes not from his position, age or role as the 14th DL, but his openness to embrace scientific findings while being clear and firm on the Dharma (Buddhist teachings)!
My respects to him! ^_^
The Dalai Lama had a discussion in his home Dharamsala, India, on March 15th, 2011 with some Thai Buddhists. The first question asked of him is basically “How does Buddhism mesh with modern science?” His answer is quite refreshing to hear from any leader of any religion.
Though, whether or not Buddhism is really a stereotypical “religion” is very much up for debate. Many classify it has a philosophy rather than a religion – myself being one of them (with exception to the supernatural-endorsing sects). I do not consider myself a Buddhist but have great reverence for many of their teachings.
