From the Inside Flap
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.

The last chapter introduces the concept of mindfulness and meditation and serves to teach those who are curious about it, how to do it, and its benefits.
The Audible narration by Martin Sheen is delightful. His voice is perfect for the material.
, the Dalai Lama continues to provide language and relationship observations to make the world a better place. Not only have I purchased this for others, it is on my recommendation list for everyone with whom I teach and work.
The book quote suggests that we cannot sit by idly and must invest our love and care.
Again, we can find that mindfulness and meditation are the primary tools for human beings to remove delusions and misconceptions in our mind.

Whilst I will continue to preach evangelically about atheism I shall hopefully be able to do so with a clearer understanding that, for the most part, we all seek the same things from life.
Well written and offers some real insight into the humanity of man beyond and separate to religion. The Dalai Lama has a really considered and compassionate way of thinking. It would do us all good if we were to take on even a few of his thoughts and suggestions to implement into my our daily life's.
"My name is Dalai Lama, philosopher kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair.....but quietly, in your own silence"
