Alan Wallace, the prolific translator of Tibetan texts and author of many original works on the intersection of Buddhism and science, was a Buddhist monk for fourteen years. He’s written a new book, Hidden Dimensions: The Unification of Physics and Consciousness, and you can read an excerpt here. You can also read the three “winning” questions — and Alan Wallace’s answers — from the latest Tricycle Q & A. The next Q & A will feature Gil Fronsdal, who was a monk in benighted Burma before teaching at the Insight Meditation Center in Redwood City, California, where he’s been since 1990. – Philip Ryan, Web Editor
