Mindfulness and memory: an experiment: the proof

Re: Universe and its constant change....purpose

Re: Universe and its constant change....purpose

Buddhism with regards to beginning of the universe is more consistent with modern physics. Buddhism minus the myth it contains is a rather scientific religion involving testing its hypothesis on one own effort. It has many parallels with modern psychology as well.
