What is the nature of mind? Could computers ever have consciousness? Can compassion be learned? When does consciousness enter the human embryo? These are just some of the many questions that were discussed during a groundbreaking meeting that took place between several prominent Western scientists and His Holiness the Dalai Lama of Tibet. Gentle Bridges is a chronicle of this extraordinary exchange of ideas. The book not only shows the insight and interest of the Dalai Lama in the sciences but also demonstrates the ways that Tibetan Buddhism can contribute to modern research on the mind.
