There is remarkable agreement between the early Buddhist view of the mind and the understandings emerging from modern neuroscience. The Buddhist concept of the aggregates (khandhas) could serve as a Table of Contents for a textbook on the human brain.

The day’s presentation reviewed the design and functions of the human brain by examining modern understandings of these phenomena within the framework of Buddhist teachings on the aggregates, emptiness, and the mysteries of “not self.”

The program included lecture presentations and times for questions and answers, handouts, and periods of silent meditation.
