Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Review:

"In this follow-up to Ethics for a New Millennium, H.H. Dalai Lama offers an inspired new take on a standard set of ethics for all humans, regardless of race, sex, or creed. Far more outspoken than ever before, his teachings are an urgent plea for all people to adhere to inherent human values. Seasoned performer Martin Sheen tackles the tough task of reading such a noble figure's work, and does so with tremendous poise and respect. Sheen's style is straightforward and personal, as if he's speaking directly to a single listener rather than an audience of millions. His narration is swift but appropriate, and Sheen captures both the Dalai Lama's wisdom and everyman approach to the material. This is an informative and thought-provoking listen that will appeal to listeners of every social background. A Houghton Mifflin Harcourt hardcover."
