At the concluding session of the two day conference on, "Quantum Physics and Madhyakima Philosophical View" organized by the Jawaharlal Nehru University in Delhi and co-sponsored by Dalai Lama Trust, the Dalai Lama addressed the Tibetan monk scholars from monastic institutions on November 13, 2015.
The Dalai Lama urged the scholars to pay equal importance to study science subjects in the monasteries. "In the ancient Nalanda, there was a tradition to study all branches of knowledge including non-Buddhist views. We should study modern scientific views and have interactions with scientists. It will help understand the philosophical views of Nalanda masters better."
There were around 20 Tibetan monk scholars from monastic institutions who participated in the conference held in New Delhi.
