One of the important factors by which Mr. S. N. Goenka re-kindled Vipassana meditation in the second half of the Twentieth century was his emphasis on the similarities between the world views of Vipassana and science. For many students around the world, this emphasis facilitated their openness to giving Vipassana meditation a fair trial.
This book is written in an honour to Mr. S. N. Goenka, to fulfill his wish to see Dhamma communicated with scientific concepts and language. It is a brief but serious portrait of the scientific world-view as it unfurled in the Twentieth and Twenty-first Centuries. In this book, first science is defined and probe is made into cosmology, physics, chemistry, biology, complexity and information sciences. Each of these fields has contributed to the scientific world-view, and each substantiates and clarifies core aspects of the Buddha’s teachings, such as anicca (impermanence), anatta (no-self), kamma (action), and Dhamma (law of nature)
This book is ideal for Vipassana meditator as well as non-meditators.
