Science and Spirituality, Health Channel


At a monastery in a remote part of southern India, a unique partnership is taking shape between scientists and Tibetan Buddhist monks. It is a convergence between science and spirituality, forming insights into mindfulness, meditation, even happiness, and the impact all of that can have on our physical health. The champion of this cause is none other than the Dalai Lama himself.

CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta sits down with His Holiness for a special one-on-one interview exploring the science of our emotions. What can Buddhism learn from science? And perhaps more importantly, what can science learn from Buddhism? And, experience an event rarely seen on camera, as the Dalai Lama shares his private meditation practice with Dr. Gupta at the monastery.
