24 July 2011 Dhamma Sharing - BUDDHISM and CONSCIOUSNESS (for non muslim only)

Dear Brothers & Sisters


This dhamma discussion uses scientific and medical concepts to make sense of the world in both ordinary and physical terms as well as in terms of Buddhist terminology or concepts. For example how does the vision of a beautiful panorama translates into something meaningful ?
Mind, consciousness, memory, rebirth, meditation, reality and ultimate reality will be discussed in terms of physical, scientific and medical knowledge.
It will certainly be an interesting session in the spirit of the KALAMA SUTTA. "
