A new book released to coincide with the Dalai Lama’s visit to the US, Universe in a Single Atom, is a profound examination of the connections between science and religion that lays a path to a more integrated and holistic understanding of human existence and the nature of reality.
While the differences between modern science and religion may, at first glance, seem insurmountable, a major new work by His Holiness the Dalai Lama, the Nobel Peace Prize winning spiritual leader of the people of Tibet and author of the national bestsellers The Art of Happiness and Ethics for the New Millennium, shows how the scientific and religious mindsets, at war in this country and around the world, can be reconciled if we open our minds and hearts to the connections between science and faith rather than perpetuating the divisive rhetoric that often surrounds them. In The Universe in a Single Atom: The Convergence of Science and Spirituality (Morgan Road Books; September 13, 2005; Hardcover; $24.95), a book comprised of completely new material, the Dalai Lama challenges readers to look beyond assumptions about the mutual exclusivity of science and religion and demonstrates the ways in which science and spirituality can both contribute to expanding the horizon of human knowledge and wisdom and be better harnessed in service of the needs and well-being of humanity.
