9780349114439: Ancient Wisdom, Modern World: Ethics for the New Millennium

This work presents the Dalai Lama's prescription for the spiritual expansion of humankind. Addressing what he sees as the spiritual void in modern society, the Dalai Lama calls for the necessity of virtue and greater compassion. Besides discussing ways in which we may care for the environment, he gives guidance in the techniques of contemplation. Written as a form of spiritual handbook, this work is also a complement to "Freedom in Exile", the Dalai Lama's autobiography.

Review:

A clearly written and straightforward book... If we could only follow the Dalai Lama's advice to the world for a new millenium and cultivate a commitment to the principle of universal responsibility and experiment with unconditional love, not only would we * SPECTATOR * All the qualities he proposes are achievable and are things we could practice daily by showing just a little thought ... A clearly written and straightforward book which, I think, achieves its purpose of approaching ethics based on universal rather than religious principles * SPECTATOR * This is a book for our time * IRELAND ON SUNDAY * Invaluable ... A blueprint for an ethical way of life * DAILY TELEGRAPH *
