“Cosmology and Consciousness VII – Philosophy and Physics” is the seventh conference in a series that convenes Buddhist scholars, and Western and Indian scientists in a 3-day dialogue to promote the integration of spiritual values and scientific investigations. This is conference is organized by the Library of Tibetan Works and Archives (in Dharamsala, India), in partnership with Science for Monks (California, USA), and made possible from a grant from the John Templeton Foundation (Philadelphia, USA) and the ongoing generous support of the Sager Family Foundation (Boston, USA). In 1999, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama provided a vision and directive for the exiled Tibetan monastic community in India to engage science, and to initiate science training that would eventually support new learning at the frontiers of science and Buddhism. This 3-day cross-cultural exchange tackles on How does the experimental evidence of modern physics intersect with Buddhist conceptions of causations, the observer, and how does the act of observation influence our measurements in nature? The monastics, and scientist alike, both steward traditions that strongly encourages dialogue and the open exchange of ideas.
