    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"
    "Wisdom calls aloud in the streets and this book."

    If you could sum up Beyond Religion in three words, what would they be?

    Wise, concise, marvelous


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

    Would compare to the Bible in terms of the powerful values and principles presented in a secular way that could yet be experiences in a religious way if wanted.


    What about Martin Sheen’s performance did you like?

    Clear voice and excellent performance.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    Take religion (any religion) apart from moral values and ethical principles and you could get a stand and teach them in a more approachable way and thus accepted by way more people. Teachings based on experience and founded in love for each other.


    Any additional comments?

    Listen to it.
