Positive, soothing, progressive
It validated beliefs I've held & lived by, but wasn't articulate & organized enough to share with others in a way they could truly understand. What a blessing! Although I am not affiliated with any religious tradition, the Dalai Lama spoke directly to my heart, mind & soul. He was open, accepting, respectful & tolerant of all other belief systems, acknowledging the wisdom of traditions other than his own. He is truly one of the world's greatest treasures.
No. I will say that Richard Gere would have been my choice as narrator, for both the quality of his voice & the his affiliation with Buddhism.
I will devote more time to training my mind & meditation.
After listening to Beyond Religion, I have to join the Dalai Lama's hope that tenets of a moral, ethical, deliberate, examined life will be taught in schools to provide a positive example to impressionable children, without exposing them to religious dogma.I have been positively affected by this book, have recommended it to at least 10 of my friends, plan to listen to it again (probably again & again over the years until I achieve mastery) & will recommend it to everyone I know at any opportunity.
