30)Science and Buddhism

His Holiness The Dalai Lama has written a book entitled:
"The Universe in a Single Atom: The convergence of Science and Spirituality" (2005).

Its a good book and he makes a valiant attempt to link science with the Buddhist religion. I find, however, that the clearest, simplest link between science and religion can be inferred from philosophical Ismailism, where the perceptible material universe is shown to be one component of the structure of truth and with the uppermost part of the hierachy of truth being spiritual in nature and represented by, interchangeably, Allah, the Noor of Imamat, Pen, Al-Sabiq, Divine Command, Universal Intellect.


Islam, eminently logical, placing the greatest emphasis on knowledge, purports to understand God's creation:Aga Khan 4.
The God of the Quran is the One whose Ayats(Signs) are the Universe in which we live, move and have our being:Aga Khan 3
