Beyond Religion: Ethics for a Whole World
McClelland & Stewart, 6. 12. 2011 - Počet stran: 208
A bracing and essential modern-day polemic from His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Beyond Religion is a blueprint for all those who yearn for a life of spiritual fulfillment as they work for a better world. This is HHDL's new model for mutual respect and understanding - rooted in our shared humanity - between religious believers and non-believers.
Ten years ago, in his bestselling 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.

This is a really tremendous little book. If a person is absolutely positive that one particular "brand" of religion has all the correct answers, then this is probably not a book for them. But for anyone who has questions and searches for peace within the questions, this book is a great one. Přečíst celou recenzi
