A Neuroscientist Shares His Lessons from Meditating with the Dalai Lama
I’m a meditation advocate. I was introduced to it a little over a year ago and without sounding dramatic, it changed my life.
And if you practice meditation too you will probably agree that it is pretty damn powerful.
I read a fascinating article on CNN yesterday about a neuroscientist who was invited to spend time meditating with the Dalai Lama, and what I loved most about the scenario was that here was a man who’s entire job and belief system is based on science, facts and analytical thinking, who could still very clearly see the merits in practicing something as holistic and grounding as meditation.
“As a neuroscientist, I never expected that a Buddhist monk, even the Dalai Lama, would teach me how to better incorporate deduction and critical thinking into my life – but that is what happened. It changed me. And I am better for it.”
