    Story
    (662)

    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.

    TEDDET says: "An Easy and Informative Listen"
    "Great Subject and Authour. Poor delivery"

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

    I did not read the print version


    What did you like best about this story?

    The content


    How could the performance have been better?

    Mr Sheen really pushed his intonation needlessly and separate files for each chapter would make the book readable. I cant pause and restart at the same point, therefore going to a noted chapter would make the reading easier.


    What did you learn from Beyond Religion that you would use in your daily life?

    an agreement with my feelings that a common feeling of secularism and the practice of it could lead to world peace.
