Mini Mindfulness Break for October 03, 2019

Not an Easy Fit

Whether on the cushion or in the laboratory, Buddhism and science resist an easy fit. A good deal of Buddhism–even including, ironically, the very notion of buddhahood–doesn’t lend itself to scientific validation or materialist empiricism. Consequently, to make Buddhism fit with what is perceived to be our best knowledge of the world, much of what constitutes the Buddhist tradition itself needs to be dismissed. In the process, this rich tradition gets reduced to a set of concepts and techniques stripped of the context that gave them meaning.
