Options March 21, 2012: Jnanavaca: Buddhism and Quantum Physics


Jnanavaca's fabulous take on Einstein, Schroedinger, double slits, and all that stuff you wished you understood about quantum physics but despaired of ever knowing so as to impress at parties... Well, now you can learn all about it — as well as how it relates to Dharma practice and the Buddha's view of a truly luminous Reality. Very classy stuff from a great speaker with the most infectious laugh on the planet! We won't give any more away here — settle back and enjoy a brain-expanding, soul questioning talk. Talk given at the Western Buddhist Order Convention, 2005.
