2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Andre Lawrence TOP 50 REVIEWER on May 23 2012
Format: Hardcover
"Clearly there are people who believe with complete sincerity that separating ethics from religion is a great mistake. For those...[God] alone can make ethics binding. Without God as the guarantor, they suggest, there is at best only relative truth. And, in this situation, there is no basis for distinguishing right from wrong, from evaluating good and bad or for restraining selfish and destructive impulses and cultivating inner values." Pp's 12-13.

****** ******** *********

BEYOND RELIGION is a very carefully crafted argument that states that one (1) ethics is an internal awareness and NOT a learned, behavioral habit. And, two (2) religion (in general) supports the values that one espouses very deeply. Nevertheless, he briefly mentions how religion has supported both altruistic and horrific causes.

This book is broken down into two (2) sections:

1- Examining ethics as an external habit...

H.H. The Dalai Lama, the exiled, spiritual head of The Tibetan people and human rights activist has long taught and published books on issues relating to religion and ethics. What I think we have here is not so much of a divorcing of religion but an examination of the values demonstrated by ethical people of various faiths and those who don't subscribe to any. It is, essentially, an attempt to define "secular humanism" in its most positive sense and ethical behavior in its most fundamental expression.

For The Dalai Lama, at the heart of ethical behavior stands compassion. Without compassion, he points out, there is no basis from which one can connect to another or even have expectations to draw from.

Another fine book by the Dalai Lama , this time addressing the need for secular ethics. Secular means worldly and lasting through the ages , so while respecting all religions , it is a call for the Human Race to come together for the betterment and survival of us all.
Like all his books it is easy and comforting to read.

Dalai Lama is a very wonderful writer. His holiness's books are easy to easy to read and understand. He explains why religion can be a blessing and a curse. I wish the world would listen to him, we can have harmony among all peoples.
