Synopsis:

For centuries Tibetan Buddhist contemplatives have directly explored consciousness through carefully honed techniques of meditation. B. Alan Wallace, widely recognized as one of the clearest facilitators of the dialogue between science and Buddhism, explains the methods and experiences of those Tibetan practitioners and compares these with investigations of consciousness by Western scientists and philosophers. Balancing the Mind includes a translation of a classic discussion by the fifteenth-century Tibetan contemplative Tsongkhapa of methods for developing exceptionally high degrees of attentional stability and clarity.

With fourteen years as a Buddhist monk, he earned a BA in physics and the philosophy of science and then a PhD in religious studies.
