very interesting Bhante ~ Having a look at his other articles, I wonder if someone should introduce Robert Lanza to Buddhism? Not too impressed with the level of the readers' comments though.

with metta and respect,

I read his book Biocentrism. His understanding of Buddhism is very limited. He tends to group Buddhism and Hinduism together in his book as simply Eastern Religion. He draws on some aspects from both to answer life mysteries but nothing concrete that shows he has any deep understanding of Buddhism. It's too bad, I think had he spend more time understanding Buddhism he would be very satisfy with the answers it provides.
