Invaluable ... A blueprint for an ethical way of life (DAILY TELEGRAPH)

This is a book for our time (IRELAND ON SUNDAY)

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)

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)

Reseña del editor:

At a time and in a culture where science and technology have taken over from religious belief, when ethics are understood primarily in terms of aesthetic choice or legality, how are we to formulate moral principles to guide us in our daily lives?
Though religion can certainly help in this, the Dalai Lama demonstrates that there are universal principles we can draw on which transcend the dilemma of belief or unbelief. And whilst many have been content to speak of spiritual matters as something mysterious or evanescent, the Dalai Lama explains his approach in terms that are as clear and concise as they are compelling.
With wit, gentle good sense and with penetrating insight, the Dalai Lama shows how the truths that have stood the test of generations of practise can provide us with the tools to live happy, fulfilled and meaningful lives. In the process, it becomes apparent that he does not merely espouse the 'feelgood' religiosity some accuse him of. The reader is left admiring not just the wisdom of the author, but the wisdom of the culture he represents.
