Ancient Wisdom by His Holiness Tenzin Gyatso the Dalai Lama
Book DescriptionAt 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.

UK Kirkus Review » The spiritual leader and teacher quietly sets out his statement to the world, invoking universal principles such as love, compassion, patience, tolerance and forgiveness as the basis for an ethical life. The central theme is compassion and this book is marked by the Dalai Lama's heart-breaking concern for others and for humanity at large. What could not happen if this book were followed as a map for life, a handbook for human beings' understanding of themselves and their place in the world? I pray that it reaches its widest possible readership. Review by SOGYAL RINPOCHE Editor's note: Sogyal Rinpoche is the author of The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying and one of the foremost interpreters of Tibetan Buddhism to the West. (Kirkus UK)
