The Mind & Life Digital Library

For over three decades, Mind & Life has hosted Dialogues and Conversations with His Holiness the Dalai Lama and leading scientists, scholars, and contemplatives to explore key questions at the intersection of science and contemplative wisdom. Below you will find recordings of these timeless conversations with deep relevance for our world today. The library provides a unique window into the art of interdisciplinary dialogue, while tracing the evolution of the field of contemplative science.

Additional Dialogues are being added to the archive on an ongoing basis.

The Digital Library was made possible thanks to generous donations by The Gaden Phodrang Foundation of the Dalai Lama, the Hershey Family Foundation, and the Morrison Centre.
