    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"
    "Dali Lama speaks for the future of ethical society"

    Story
    What did you love best about Beyond Religion?

    That Dali Lama does not raise, nor lower the importance of individual religions, and gives high respect to each person's belief.


    What other book might you compare Beyond Religion to and why?

    Kahil Gibran's The Prophet. Both express the importance of each persons' place on this earth, and the responsibility we each have to respect our fellow persons.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I appreciate Dali Lama sharing the wise words he was given by other teacher's along his path, and the humble attitude Dali Lama retains.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Secular Ethics, do you have them and what are they?


    Any additional comments?

    It is my wish that many people would hear / read Beyond Religion, because if a sane approach is not found soon, our societies will teeter off the edge of the chasm of chaos.
