Dalai Lama gives talk on meditation

In neuroscience, sayeth blogged about the controversy stirred by the fact that in the series entitled "Dialogues between Neuroscience and Society", the Dalai Lama will give a talk on "The Neuroscience of Meditation". (See program guide description)

In response I wrote:
It sounds silly to me since a talk on meditation is not "advancing religious beliefs." I'm sure some of the other speakers giving talks are devout followers of various faiths. I see nothing wrong with say a devout Christian giving a talk on say brain aging as long as they confine the talk to brain aging. Even if their interest in aging stems from their spiritual beliefs.
