Einstein and Buddha: The Parallel Sayings includes introductory remarks that illuminate the quotes, but the focus of the book is the parallel sayings themselves. The parallels are presented side by side on facing pages, inviting the reader to read the quotes, meditate on their meaning and discover the lessons they offer. The parallels are grouped thematically and draw from a wide range of physicists including Albert Einstein, Niels Bohr, Werner Heisenberg, David Bohm and Richard Feynman, as well as ancient and contemporary teachers from the East including Buddha, Lao Tzu, Chuang Tzu, Sri Aurobindo and the Dalai Lama. Topics include time and space, subject and object, and the true nature of reality. The parallels bring science and religion closer together than ever before.
