Buddhism and Science

Front Cover

Buddhadasa P. Kirthisinghe

Buddhism and Science is a compilation of a few learned articles on the subject. The book co-ordinates modern scientific thought with the Buddha Dharma and how the revolutionary theories of Charles Darwin and others blend with the Dharma (Buddha`s Teachings). It recognizes that the world, or even the mughty universe was not created by a god rather it is a steady state of the universe with no beginning and end. The work has shown how the Buddhist philosophy of Anicca (impermanence), Dukkha (suffering), and Anatta (ego-lessness) blends with modern science, with remarkable clarity. It also states that atomic science and Buddhism seem to be entirely different, yet they are tackling the same problem of energy and releasing of energy, breaking the highly concentrated form of energy, the so-called atom, in the one case, and ego, in the other.
