Presentations, videos, readings, and discussions with Buddhist Teachers, academic researchers, physicians, and practitioners. Video and audio presentations and discussions will focus on the mental and physical experience of death, the time between, and rebirth, as described by emerging medical science and classical texts of Tibetan Buddhism.

Due to time constraints, the topic of how to care for those who are dying falls outside the purview of this event.

Date and Time Topic
Saturday, April 15 

10:00 am – 1:00 pm  New York time

The Experience of Death:

What is death? How does it feel to die? How do Tibetan Buddhist teachings compare to current medical research?

Saturday, April 15 

 3:00 pm – 6:00 pm  New York time

The Time Between:

What does research on near-death experiences tell us about what the mind experiences after death? What do Buddhist teachings tell us about the “bardo” state?

Sunday, April 16 

10:00 am to 1:00 pm New York time


What patterns emerge from the thousands of cases that scientists have documented from people who remember their previous lives. What are the patterns ? What transfers from life to life? Is there evidence for what Buddhists call “karma” affecting future rebirth?

Video, audio, and print materials referenced during Science Meets Buddhism: Death, the Time Between, and Rebirth will be posted on April 16, immediately following the event. Please return to this page on April 17.
