Beyond Religion by H.H. Dalai Lama
Beyond Religion: Book summary and reviews of Beyond Religion by H.H. Dalai Lama
Beyond Religion Summary
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 secular ethics that gives tolerant respect to religion - those that ground ethics in a belief in God and an afterlife, and those that understand good actions as leading to better states of existence in future lives. And yet, with the highest level of spiritual and intellectual authority, the Dalai Lama makes a claim for what he calls a third way. This is a system of secular ethics that transcends religion as a way to recognize our common humanity and so contributes to a global human community based on understanding and mutual respect.

H.H. Dalai Lama Author Biography
His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, is both the
head of state and the spiritual leader of Tibet. He was born on 6 July
1935, to a farming family, in a small hamlet located in Taktser, Amdo,
northeastern Tibet. At the age of two the child, who was named
Lhamo Dhondup at that time, was recognized as the reincarnation of the
13th Dalai Lama, Thubten Gyatso. The Dalai Lamas are believed to
be manifestations of Avalokiteshvara or Chenrezig, the Bodhisattva of
Compassion and patron saint of Tibet. Bodhisattvas are
enlightened beings who have postponed their own nirvana and chosen to
take rebirth in order to serve humanity.
