http://dalailamacenter.org On March 11, Dr Ekman shared this theory in his talk titled Darwin, the Dalai Lama and the nature of compassion, which he gave at the SFU Segal School of Business.

In this talk, Dr Ekman pointed out that although they both arrived to their conclusions independently, Darwin and Buddhism have similar ideas when it comes to human nature.
