Einstein Podcast Photo by Sidney Perry

Professor Thurman discusses the progression in theories of relativity in the west from Einstein to Wittgenstein, and shows how the Buddha set forth a perhaps more complete version of the same insight 2500 years earlier with what was later called “the royal reason of relativity. “

Podcast includes an introduction to emptiness, non-duality and the Buddha’s radical and blissful discovery.

This episode is extracted from Professor Thurman’s Winter 2015 lecture series at Tibet House US  “Essential Tibetan Buddhism, and its Context in Tibet and the World.”
