Ethics for the New Millennium: His Holiness the Dalai Lama

by

Ethics for the New Millennium: His Holiness the Dalai Lama Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Here is a moral system based on universal rather than religious principles. Its ultimate goal is happiness for every individual regardless of religious belief. Though the Dalai Lama is himself a practicing Buddhist, his approach to life and the moral compass that guides him can lead each and every one of us – Muslim, Christian, Jew, or Atheist – to a happier, more fulfilling life.

Synopsis:

In a difficult, uncertain time, it takes a person of great courage, such as the Dalai Lama, to give us hope. Regardless of the violence and cynicism we see on television and read about in the news, there is an argument to be made for basic human goodness. The number of people who spend their lives engaged in violence and dishonesty is tiny compared to the vast majority who would wish others only well. According to the Dalai Lama, our survival has depended and will continue to depend on our basic goodness. Ethics for the New Millennium presents a moral system based on universal rather than religious principles. Its ultimate goal is happiness for every individual, irrespective of religious beliefs. Though he himself a practicing Buddhist, the Dalai Lama's teachings and the moral compass that guides him can lead each and every one of us—Muslim, Christian, Jew, Buddhist, or atheist—to a happier, more fulfilling life.

His Holiness the Dalai Lama's newest book, The Wisdom of Compassion, is now available from Riverhead Books.

Synopsis:

The Dalai Lama bases his exquisitely argued cry for a new look at society on the radical notion that human beings are "originally pure" and presents a persuasive examination of man's fundamental nature. His moral system is founded on universal principles and can lead persons of any religion to a happier, more fulfilling life. (World Religions)
