Faculty members include professors and researchers with a valid faculty ID from a university, not post-doctorates or students. The 2013 California Cognitive Science Conference at UC Berkeley will bring together students, faculty and researchers from all over the world for a day of featured talks and research presentations. The theme for our annual conference is Learning and Memory: The Enlightened Mind, and we will be exploring this exciting topic through an interdisciplinary lens. This year marked the 26th Mind & Life Dialogue and took place at Drepung monastery in Mungod, Karnataka. This conference was organized by The Dalai Lama Trust, The Library of Tibetan Works and Archives (LTWA) and The Mind and Life Institute.


This conference comes at a time when science is being introduced into the monastic curriculum, with monks and nuns being the primary audience.
Arthur Zajonc, President of the Mind & Life Institute, recalled that the first such meeting had taken place 25 years ago and now science is being introduced into the monastic curriculum. As the topic of Neuroscience was broached, Richard Davidson Ph.D, said “the human brain is probably the most complex piece of matter in the world,” adding, “and yet scientists have very little idea of how it works. It was a welcomed treat to learn that the experiments conducted with contemplative practices showed exceptional results. Geshe Lhakdor explains “the scientific community is beginning to agree that given the widespread problems we are facing in human society on every level, unless we make some fundamental changes in our way of thinking, scientific discoveries and technological facilities cannot alone solve the problem.
Thupten Jinpa, who has been involved in the Mind and Life Conferences since the very beginning says – “the meeting of the Buddhist tradition and science is very important because at a very fundamental level the two traditions represent two investigative approaches. Recent additions to the conference programme include (amongst others): Adele van der Plas is a criminal lawyer who has been involved in the legalisation of Dutch Santo Daime churches and has handled several 'magic mushroom' cases. Cette conference sera donnee en l’honneur du double Doctorat Honoris Causa que le couple Damasio recevra le lendemain avec l’eloge d’Olivier Houde.
Please enter a quantity of 1 or more next to the type or types of tickets you would like to purchase. It will provide attendees with a chance to learn from and interact with researchers that have made ground-breaking contributions to the interdisciplinary field of Cognitive Science. In addition to an audience of 900 in the hall with the His Holiness and the scientists, there were another 5,000 monks and nuns in a larger hall watching the conference on screens.
These disciplines were united by one underlying theme, which is common to science, Buddhism, philosophy and the spiritual journey of all individuals – understanding the nature of reality.


The objective of this dialogue was to familiarize the monastic community with scientific concepts and how they might correspond with Buddhist thought.
This is a courageous move, he said, but clarified that science is not a branch of materialism but an attempt to penetrate reality. This was taken care of by our Audio Visual Section has worked tirelessly to collect and have each day’s worth of videos up and running on the internet for the audience at home in addition to shooting the live stream.

His Holiness became fascinated by science when he chanced upon a telescope in Tibet left behind by his predecessor and began observing the moon. This seems to have incredible results, increasing the students’ concentration, attitude, awareness and interest.
The Audio Visual Team also had the proceedings of the conference captured and screened in a larger auditorium for about 5,000 monks. As his curiosity deepened he discovered that several aspects of science corresponded to Buddhist thought and was happy to open a dialogue. Meetings like this are very important as they make available new ideas to both ends of this spectrum – scientific and monastic studies.
