The Dalai Lama on The Missing Link in Spirituality & Science of the Mind

Posted by:

This is Part 3 of my day with the Dalai Lama Series.  What follows may not be grammatically correct because I have left the words as they were spoken so that you get more of the Dalai Lama’s personality and vibe.

I have split it into several parts because the original notes run to some 3,700 words and 7 pages.  I will also create a complete version for those who do like to read through from start to finish.

Part 1 is about how to get inner peace, how you can overcome difficulties in life, and what you can do to lift your spirits, and Part 2 focuses on how to create happier relationships.  To read:

QUESTION: I THINK YOU ARE A SELF SUSTAINING INDIVIDUAL, BUT NOT EVERYONE IS AS SELF SUSTAINING AS YOU ARE.  I WOULD LIKE TO PURSUE THE ORGANISATION QUESTION BECAUSE YOU TALK A GREAT DEAL ABOUT THE VALUES OF HOW PEOPLE SHOULD BEHAVE  BUT IF WE THINK BACK TO THE DAYS WHEN PEOPLE WERE RELIGIOUS, THE WAY THEY LEARNT WAS BY GOING FREQUENTLY TO CHURCH AND MEETING WITH OTHER PEOPLE WHO WERE EXPRESSING THE SAME MORAL VIEWS AND REINFORCING EACH OTHER SO MAKING IT EASIER TO LIVE WELL, IT UPLIFTS YOU AND INSPIRES YOU.  DO YOU THINK THERE IS A PROBLEM IN THE MODERN WESTERN WORLD THAT WE DON’T HAVE ORGANISATIONS TO PROMOTE SECULAR ETHICS IN THAT WAY?  WE HAVE GREAT TEACHERS BUT WE DON’T HAVE THOSE ORGANISATIONS.  DO YOU THINK THAT ACTION FOR HAPPINESS COULD HELP TO PERFORM THAT KIND OF ROLE?

“Your initiative is a new movement, wonderful.  You start in England, this is needed in Great Britain, in 5 areas, then eventually it should be international organisation.  I think these kinds of movements are now coming and I see really hopeful signs. 

One single person, one single organisation, it is difficult to change humanity, but in different parts of the world, different beings, different professions, different education, but same goal, trying to build a happy world. 

Try to aim to not produce weapons, but produce science.  Many more scientists are interested in human nature and methods including the brain, the consciousness, the emotions, and basic human nature.  Compassion from the heart is very very important for happiness of self and for happy family, and happy community, furthermore, happy nation, happy humanity. 

Scientific research is very active around that.  In the beginning some formal service, and then let people remain and have discussions and some talk.  I don’t know. 

Have a friend where you can share your problems, your difficulties, that is very very helpful for your emotional life.  If things are kept to oneself, that leads to more frustration.”

QUESTION: I DON’T KNOW IF EVERYONE HERE KNOWS, BUT YOU HAVE BEEN MEETING WITH WESTERN SCIENTISTS FOR THE PAST 25 YEARS, LONGER, 30 YEARS, AND YOU FORMED AN ORGANISATION CALLED MIND OF LIFE.  THERE ARE SOME WONDERFUL BOOKS THAT COME OUT FROM THESE MEETINGS.  IT’S THE COMBINATION OF BUDDIST WISDOM AND PSYCHOLOGY AND SCIENCE OF MIND.

“The science of mind should be part of everything.  Two years ago I appealed to some scholars in India to condense into 3 parts. 

First one science, the science of our mind.  Then should consider philosophy for the second part, philosophy very similar to that of quantum physics.  I worked with quantum physicist in Delhi found that 2000 years ago they already found the same thing.  And then third part, Buddhism.  So hopefully people will start to study more of the human emotions and more of the mind. 

If you ask if people prefer smile face or negative face people say smile.  Even some animals, some dogs feel uncomfortable with negative face.  So how important is love?  Very.  We have to make clear the whole system of emotions.  Once we know a map of the emotions it is much easier to deal with emotions. 

Anger, the causes discourse.  If you don’t like anger you must pay more to these conditions and pay more attention to courses like that.  It is very essential, the hygiene of the emotions and hygiene of physical. 

Actually the ancient Indian science of mind is very good, but in India they not much preserve all of these things.  Countries like China are also full of knowledge and wisdom but also not much pay attention to rigorous study.  Only the Tibetan do this for many years they seriously study. 

I believe now the time has come for some of that information to be presented, not as Buddhist religion but as science.  The science of the mind.  Discuss this very life and what is inside this skull.”
