Every day this week in Dharamsala, the Dalai Lama will sit down with a group of psychologists, neuroscientists, and philosophers to discuss current western understanding of the mind and its possible connections to Buddhist theory and practice. The conference, entitled Attention, Memory And The Mind, is the 18th in a series of similar meetings which stems back to 1987, and which have previously explored topics such as Quantum Physics and Eastern Contemplative Sciences, Sleeping, Dreaming and Dying and Mindfulness, Compassion and the Treatment of Depression.
