Buddhism: The last honest religion? Entertaining Q&A with Dalai Lama - YouTube
ploaded by YourBrainOnReligion on Apr 6, 2011
The Dalai Lama had a discussion in his home Dharamsala, India, on March 15th, 2011 with some Thai Buddhists. The first question asked of him is basically "How does Buddhism mesh with modern science?" His answer is quite refreshing to hear from any leader of any religion.
Though, whether or not Buddhism is really a stereotypical "religion" is very much up for debate. Many classify it has a philosophy rather than a religion - myself being one of them (with exception to the supernatural-endorsing sects). I do not consider myself a Buddhist but have great reverence for many of their teachings.
Full 2-hour discussion is available here:
(I edited out spots where he was asking his translator for English words and other pauses/interruptions like that)
