Beyond Religion: Ethics for a Whole World

by

Beyond Religion: Ethics for a Whole World Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For thousands of years, religions have offered human beings moral guidance and meaning in life. But if — as the Dalai Lama argues — the majority of the world's population is no longer religious, where should we turn for moral guidance?

In Beyond Religion, one of the world's most renowned religious leaders and peacemakers lays out his vision for the nonreligious way — a way to lead an ethical, happy, and spiritual life. Transcending the religion wars, he outlines a system of ethics for our shared world, one that makes a stirring appeal for what he calls a “third way." Here is  a ground-breaking blueprint for all those who may choose not to identify with a religious tradition yet still yearn for a life of spiritual fulfillment as they work for a better world.

Review:

"An impressive guide for teaching religious tolerance and respect to readers of all ages." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"This wise, humane book, an original work rather than a collection of talks, is an incisive statement of His Holinesss thinking on ways to bring peace to a suffering world." Publishers Weekly

Synopsis:

A stirring call to move beyond religion for the guidance to improve human life on individual, community, and global levels--including a guided meditation practice for cultivating key human values 

Synopsis:

An unprecedented event: a beloved world religious leader proposes a way to lead an ethical, happy, and spiritual life beyond religion and offers a program of mental training for cultivating key human values

Ten years ago, in his best-selling Ethics for a New Millennium, His Holiness the Dalai Lama first proposed an approach to ethics based on universal rather than religious principles. Now, in Beyond Religion, the Dalai Lama, at his most compassionate and outspoken, elaborates and deepens his vision for the nonreligious way. 

Transcending the mere “religion wars,” he outlines a system of ethics for our shared world, one that gives full respect to religion. With the highest level of spiritual and intellectual authority, the Dalai Lama makes a stirring appeal for what he calls a “third way,” a path to an ethical and happy life and to a global human community based on understanding and mutual respect. 

Beyond Religion is an essential statement from the Dalai Lama, a blueprint for all those who may choose not to identify with a religious tradition, yet still yearn for a life of spiritual fulfillment as they work for a better world.
