Description

In the face of natural disasters and the financial crises, it is easy to question the meaning of life. Why are things the way they are? Is there a God? His Holiness, the Dalai Lama, believes that the very act of attempting to answer them will lead us to the 'basic human values' of love, compassion, patience, tolerance and forgiveness which will help equip ourselves with the inner resources we need to cope. Drawing answers from all schools of though, Beyond Religion tells us that science and religion must meet in the middle, understanding that neither has all the answers but that a combination of the two can lead us to more fulfilled inner lives. Encouraging us to explore the benefits of meditation and spirituality, the Dalai Lama believes that peaceful inner lives can be achieved and that his 'basic human values' are indispensable conditions of a meaningful life. Written with the Dalai Lama's characteristic wit, insight and charm, Beyond Religion is timely book that will have enormous impact on a world looking for guidance.show more
