INTRODUCTION
"WITHIN A TREE, THERE IS A FLOWER

WITHIN A ROCK, THERE IS A FLAME"
BY SENIOR VENERABLE THICH NGUYEN TANG,
QUANG DUC MONASTERY MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA.


"...The gift of the Dhamma excels all gifts; the taste of the Dhamma excels all tastes, and delight in the Dhamma excels all delights. The eradication of craving (i.e., attainment of arahatship) overcomes all ills (samsara dukkha).

The gift of the Dhamma is the greatest giving among the all other givings. The one who is well trained in the Dhamma will share his understanding of the Dhamma either by writing a book, by preaching Dhamma, by discussing Dhamma, or by writing an article. Master Thich Nguyen Tang has used all these methods in his contribution to the Dhamma. Giving food or clothes or any other material items to a person makes them happy and they indeed will survive in the world, but they cannot get rid of this terrible circle of birth and death. It can be done only by understanding the noble Dhamma. Thus, the writing of the book is a great meritorious act, as well as the great contribution for the Dhamma.

Master Thich Nguyen Tang contributes his positive energy, knowledge, wisdom, creativity, skill, thinking power, and knowledge of modern technology for the sake of Buddhism in every possible way. He is the future of Buddhism. Therefore, I would like to wish him a long life and good health.

“May he obtain physical and mental peace, harmony, energy, and strength to keep on his noble service for the blooming of the Buddhist teaching worldwide.”

Buddhism, that oldest world religion, is generally misconceived to be a blind faith. As seen from its outward appearance, really it is painted with a strong religious color. To a non-Buddhist, who sees the golden image of Buddha, and hears the chanting of Sanscrit Sutras and the clinking of the bell, Buddhism is nothing but idolatry; in view of their passive life, Buddhists of the Order are said to be "social parasites".

"My brief remarks cannot do justice to the wide-ranging sweep of these papers and their thoughtful treatment of often difficult concepts. Wallace's volume is an important contribution to the emerging dialogue between Buddhism and science, and to the larger rapprochement between science and spirituality."

I would like to suggest some areas in which science could be improved upon, beginning with a discussion of "insufficiency." Science is not sufficient to remedy the problems of the modern day world. To illustrate, let us look at the situation in the environment. The problem of conservation is one of the major issues of our time, and science must play a leading role in dealing with this problem, especially in terms of research and proposals for solutions.

In the seventeenth century when Rene Descartes divided everything in the universe into two realms as "Res Extensa" (matter) and "Res Cogitans" (mind), gathering knowledge within the realm of Res Extensa was called Science and the phenomenon of reincarnation got pushed into the other realm Res Cogitans which was condemned to be not respectable and not up to the dignity of Scientists to probe into. Science was considered the respectable realm to study.

Western interest in Eastern religions, especially Buddhism, historically coincided with the rise of modern science and the corresponding perceived decline of religious orthodoxy in the West. Put simply: Modern science initiated a deep spiritual crisis that led to an unfortunate split between faith and reason—a split yet to be reconciled. Buddhism was seen as an "alternative altar," a bridge that could reunite the estranged worlds of matter and spirit. Thus, to a large extent Buddhism's flowering in the West during the last century came about to satisfy post-Darwinian needs to have religious beliefs grounded in new scientific truth.

Ngày nay Đại Lễ Vesak (Hợp nhất của ba ngày Đản Sinh, Thành Đạo và Nhập Diệt) của Đức Phật đã được Liên Hiệp Quốc công nhận. Trong ngày lễ này, Tổng Thư Ký LHQ, các vị nguyên thủ quốc gia, các giới chức chính quyền cao cấp tại những quốc gia Phật Giáo, hoặc tham dự hoặc gửi điện văn chúc mừng, chiêm bái tự viện, viếng thăm hoặc dâng hoa cúng dường chư tăng ni và Lễ Hội Phật Đản đã được quần chúng tổ chức trang nghiêm, cung kính.

The topic of this panel is "Biotechnology: Boon or Bane for Spiritual Development." It has very often been said that we are on the threshold of the biotech century, and I am sure that all of you are very clearly aware that genetic engineering is going to totally reshape life on this planet in many ways: economically, politically, scientifically--particularly in terms of medicine, and also environmentally.
