    Story
    (638)

    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"
    "The Perfect Narrater"

    Story
    Would you listen to Beyond Religion again? Why?

    Yes, as there was so much WISDOM and COMMON SENSE[much lacking in today's majority] that you will perceive newness in understanding everytime you replay.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The simplicity of it.


    Have you listened to any of Martin Sheen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No I've never listened to any of Martin Sheen's readings before. I had just watched him in THE WAY[a surprisingly good movie] which lead major credibility to his reading this book. From the few times I have heard the Dalai Lama speak I believe he picked up his speech nuances quite well.


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

    Not sure about a film?


    Any additional comments?

    It was a wonderful surprise and gift to be offered the oppurtunity to get this for a free download. Otherwise would have had no clue it was around.....
