Description

Ethics for the New Millennium Don't miss His Holiness the Dalai Lama's classic book, The Art of Happiness, or his newest, The Book of Joy, named one of Oprah's Favorite Things. 

In a difficult, uncertain time, it takes a person of great courage, such as the Dalai Lama, to give us hope. Regardless of the violence and cynicism we see on television and read about in the news, there is an argument to be made for basic human goodness. The number of people who spend their lives engaged in violence and dishonesty is tiny compared to the vast majority who would wish others only well. According to the Dalai Lama, our survival has depended and will continue to depend on our basic goodness. Ethics for the New Millennium presents a moral system based on universal rather than religious principles. Its ultimate goal is happiness for every individual, irrespective of religious beliefs. Though he himself a practicing Buddhist, the Dalai Lama's teachings and the moral compass that guides him can lead each and every one of us—Muslim, Christian, Jew, Buddhist, or atheist—to a happier, more fulfilling life.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

    When this first came out right at the time many were so concerned about y2k (remember that one) it was so refreshing to find a book that lays out a compelling vision of how humanity can over come our short comings. 2000 may have been the first time in global history that we all were on the same day and date this counting of time together for the first time really proves that the world is connected as this book claims. I continue to give copies to people I meet it is still very relevant.

    This is my favorite book by the Dali Lama. This is both simple and deep. This book paints a ethical foundation based on a certain kind of common sense, not on some creed or theology. It is very well done.
