Summary

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.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* In his latest eloquent and recalibrating treatise, the Dalai Lama, a genuinely global spiritual leader in a way never before possible, argues that given the daunting difficulties we face, from poverty and war to environmental degradation, injustice, corruption, and inequality, religion alone cannot answer all our problems. Why? Because the beliefs of one religion are not meaningful to everyone. What is needed, the Dalai Lama lucidly argues, is a secular ethics based on profound respect and tolerance of all religions and all nonbelievers. Emphasizing our shared humanity and interdependence, the Dalai Lama lays the groundwork for moral ethics and inner values that foster personal and societal change. A profound thinker and a warmly commonsensical teacher, the Dalai Lama draws on neurological discoveries as he delves deeply into our mental complexity and excitable imaginations, the implications of our being a social animal, and how ethical awareness and compassion can combat the globally deleterious consequences of greed, dishonesty, and violence. The Dalai Lama's searchlight intelligence, wisdom, humor, humility, and hope make reading this inspiring crystallization of a lifetime of inquiry and reflection feel like the first step to answering His Holiness' core question for each of us, What can I contribute to the betterment of humanity? --Seaman, Donna Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly 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. (Dec.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
