In this episode of The Samadhi Podcast, David is joined for a fascinating conversation with his teacher, B. Alan Wallace. One of the world’s leading scholars, writers, and teachers of Tibetan Buddhism and its relation to science, Lama Alan was ordained by His Holiness the Dalai Lama and devoted fourteen years to training as a Tibetan Buddhist monk. He has written and translated more than 40 books and has been a leading voice in the dialogues and research between Buddhists and scientists.
