Quotes from Einstein and the Buddha - Coldplay The Scientist 720p HD

As promised in my earlier post - here it is. The Buddha's Face You Tube channel multimedia essay on Einstein and the Buddha accompanied with the music from Coldplay's The Scientist and featuring a number of quotes from the world's greatest ever scientist Albert Einstein.

Einstein thought that the religion of the future would be a cosmic religion transcending the concept of a personal God and thus avoiding dogma and theology. He also went on to remark that such a religion should encompass those of both the natural and the spiritual worlds and ought be based on a religious sense arising from one's own personal experience of all things natural and spiritual as a meaningful whole or cosmic unity. Buddhism of course is a fitting answer to Einstein's requirement for a religion based on logical thought.

"If there is any religion that could cope with modern scientific needs it would be Buddhism." Albert Einstein
