Overview

Ethics for the New Millennium by Dalai Lama

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.

I have tried several books from His Holiness, the Dalai Lama and somehow I find them so hard to read. I feel like I read ten pages and can't say anything really got to my heart. Maybe he keeps things very simple in purpose, but if you have read some buddhist literature before this book will not teach you anything new.

This is in the top 5 of my favorite books. The Dalai Lama masterfully articulates some of the most important principals that are set forth by the Buddhist religion into understandable everyday language. When these principals are applied to one's life the effects are dramatic and carry incredible impact. He makes a point of the fact that this life is a journey and that we must continually be mindful of these principals. He quite skillfully is able to breakdown what can sometimes seem like a hectic and empty existance into very simply understood terms. Pointing out that all humans have two main desires; to acheive happiness and avoid suffering. He goes on to give seemingly simplistic, but often overlooked guidelines in order to acheive these two main desires. He links many of these thoughts with superb logical reasoning. Empathy is a main theme and the book does a wonderfull job stressing this eternally important principle. You will not regret reading this book!

How can we be happy in today's materialistic, competitive world? Not by amassing more wealth and possessions, according to the Dalai Lama. He recommends that we focus on internal, spiritual issues: we need to recognize our connectedness with all human beings, learn to restrain anger and other negative thoughts and emotions, and develop patience and compassion for others. For the way to be happy is by being a good, ethical person. This is useful advice that can help anyone who takes it seriously. But self-change is difficult; considerable effort is required. Getting ahead by pulling other people down is widely accepted in our society, and I'm afraid those who most need the Dalai Lama's advice may be the least likely to read this book and follow his teachings.

Everyone on the planet should read this wonderful book, and if they can't read, someone should read it to them. The Dalai Lama clearly explains the means by which everyone may achieve their own personal happiness, and by doing so create a peaceful world of loving kindness for all. Read it and live it!

Teaches about life and how we should treat others. Slow moving, yet very emotional. I admire the Dalai Lama for writing this.

I found this book very soothing in a sense that in every sentence there is a message of goodness. It is written in a simplistic manner and therefore you can follow easily the message that the Dalai Lama is expressing I recommend this book to anyone who would like to stop and think about peace of mind.
