Dalai Lama in a Science Congress!

In Science Magazine's "news of the week" there is an article about Dalai Lama's talk in a Neuroscience Congress. Its interesting to read about the controversies, It reminds me of Aldous Huxley's view on such it goes...
"At any historical moment human behavior is a compromise (enforced from without by law and custom, from within by belief in religious or philosophical myths) between raw instinct on the one hand and the unattainable ideal on the other – a compromise, in our sculptural metaphor, between the unshaped block of stone and the many-armed dancing Krishna."
When there are two contradictory paths, do we always have to select one? Follower of Religion...Non Follower...Why cant one be "Just an observer"?
