    The Dalai Lama, at his most compassionate and outspoken, here 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.

    James says: "An Easy and Informative Listen"
    "Beyond Religion-An Unmeasurable Gift to the world!"

    What made the experience of listening to Beyond Religion the most enjoyable?

    There are several things that came together in having me participate in listening to my first ever owned audio book. In my life time with post graduate work, working in the professional business world and as a Retired US Army Major- which sums to more than just 24+ years - I never once owned a book ON: tape, 8 track, LP, reel 2 reel, phonograph, cassette, CD and now a Download! This was an free offer ad of an audio book on FB. I read the first few reviews and had some reluctancy due to the comments made on downloading. I'm am by no means a cyber guru and quite the opposite needing help when it comes to the technical world of gaget changes. But this is the Dali Lami AND it's Martin Sheen narrating and it's FREE! After reading the instructions thoughtfully and carefully I took the plung and with no additional help from a tech wizard - behold within 3 minutes the download was complete, double clicked to move to my iTunes file and then another click to verify both my password and log on ids for Amazon - then low and behold a voice from heaven (that would be my Bose speakers connected to my 27


    What about Martin Sheen’s performance did you like?

    Martin Sheen is a real gem amongst entertainers. That along with his background history of participating authentically in social matters - he has the credibility of being granted a man worth listening to.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, and the truth be told, I don't have any experience in double tasking and listen to something as important as this. Oh believe me, I know how to quadruple task when I'm in one of those mandatory attendance boring meetings and speeches using my blackberry and iPad to escape. Not this one. I almost wish that there was a visual aid of sorts that might be related. Maybe over tea with a friend listening in with me. I'll figure something for the last couple of hours or start over and invite that friend.
