This video looks at Buddhism through a different lens, shining a scientific viewpoint on it as the benefits of freeing the mind from negativity (and therefore obtaining inner peace) can be verified through our own experiences. In this three-minute video, Buddhist teacher Kadam Morten Clausen states Buddhism is a science of the mind for this very reason.
“And everything that Buddha taught can be empirically verified through your own experience. In other words, you can test it. Actually, I think it’s a very interesting science because you’re the scientist…..what Buddha basically said is that we can understand through our own experience that happiness comes from inner peace. And we can explore that in our own experiences and see, well, that’s true, happiness does come from inner peace.”
