    innerprisms.bandcamp.com This is a series of images over Alan Wallace’s lecture, “The Conscious Universe: Where Buddhism and Physics Converge”. I was originally going to create this type of video for his whole lecture but in total it’s rather long and it would take me many hours! 😀 So heres the link to the mp3’s. I’ve read a portion of a few of his books regarding this subject. I highly recommend listening to these! There free, and provide very interesting and meaningful information! 🙂 This video ends at minute 12:54 in the first lecture. www.sbinstitute.com Check B Alan Wallace website for his bio, he practiced many years as a monk with the Dalai Lama, and then came back to the west to get a degree in physics. www.alanwallace.org Please check out my recently finished video project: Where Science and Buddhism Meet www.youtube.com

  • Q&A: I really like Natassia’s quote on Buddhism (that ACTUALLY makes sense!)…?

    Question by ωαzgυ∂ :::>★ {ѕнσσтιиg ѕтαя}: I really like Natassia’s quote on Buddhism (that ACTUALLY makes sense!)…?
    “”Ever religion’s got ’em…
    Except for perhaps Buddhism.”
    ~Natassia

    It seems to fit with everything:
    every religion shares something with other religions

    can you please give me examples of what Buddhism has that no other religion has?

    or is it that Buddhism is not really a religion, and that’s why “every religion” except Buddhism shares something in common?

    What is Buddhism?!

    🙂

    “bends to fit”
    that’s what it was!…I couldn’t put a word on it, but something about the general adaptability of Buddhism to its surroundings

    haha..this has new favorite quote potential…it can fit everywhere!

  • How Do I Begin Studying Buddhism?

    Question by : How Do I Begin Studying Buddhism?
    Buddhism really appeals to me, and I would like to learn more about it. I found a lot of information on the subject through Google, but, there is far to much for me to know where to start. Could anyone direct me to a “Guide to Learning/Understanding/Practicing Buddhism?”

    This excellent site has a couple of guided study courses that lead you through the philosophy and history of Buddhism.

    http://www.buddhanet.net/e-learning/index.htm will take you directly to those.

    It also contains a mass of information that will help you study in greater depth should you wish.

    UPDATE: what EnvyMe says is true up to a point, but a generalisation. This site is a well-respected source of information on all schools of Buddhism.
