In this two-part video, B. Alan Wallace covers both “Ethics for the 21st Century” and “The Nature of Mind” as background for His Holiness Dalai Lama’s teaching on the same subjects at University of California, Santa Barbara. B. Alan Wallace also provides an overview of the relevance of Buddhism to the modern Western culture, historically undergirded by the often problematic precepts and assumptions of scientific materialism.

Recorded in April 2009 at the Old Mission in Santa Barbara, California.
