Science of Meditation

Two recent interviews with Matthieu Ricard and Richard Davidson suggest that there is scientific evidence of the benefits of meditation. The interview with Matthieu Ricard, The Happiest Man in the World, a renowned Tibetan Buddhist teacher shares his thoughts on the meaning of happiness, and how he understands spirituality as “contemplative science.”

The interview with Richard Davidson, Investigating Healthy Minds, it is said that:
