    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.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Beyond Religion to be better than the print version?

    I really enjoy all the benefits of listening to an audio text. However i am a book nut and love hard copies of the great works for reference purposes. If you are not a hard copy book collector then i highly recommend the audio version.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Beyond Religion?

    Hearing The Dali Lama so eloquently explain in simple to understand terms that all religions are equal and it's the message of the spiritual oneness that we all have in common. Love and Peace between all people regardless of which belief system they have is the ultimate goal of any and all systems on this planet. There is not 1 religious leader or any other leader in the world today that preaches enlightening compassion on the level of the Dali Lama. He is genuine.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Martin Sheen?

    YES! Mr. Sheen did a wonderful job. He seemed genuinely honored to be chosen to read the Dali Lamas text. His enthusiasm for the material made his rendition a pleasure to hear.


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

    Ascension can be a simple understanding.


    Any additional comments?

    I gave 3 stars for performance because it took me 10 minutes to get the book to play after the download. the set up was not as user friendly as i anticipated. a friend of mine never got his to work. the program should open and start the text upon completion of the download, but i understand this is easier said than done with today's tech methods of incompatible platforms and philosophies of greed. Overall it was worth the perseverance!
