CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — Science-and-religion could not hope for a more ardent, or more public, cheerleader than the Dalai Lama.
The Dalai Lama, the spiritual leader of Tibetan Buddhism and head of Tibet’s government-in-exile, spent a good chunk of his recent  U.S. visit extolling the possible benefits that may come from Buddhist monks collaborating with Western scientists.
“Up to now, the science mainly dealt with external things, physics and external reality,” he said at a press conference at the Charles Hotel. “The most important point is to analyze our inner world.”
