At a time and in a culture where science and technology have taken over from religious belief, when ethics are understood primarily with regards to aesthetic choice or legality, how are we to formulate moral principles to guide us in our day-to-day lives? Though religion can indubitably assist in this, the Dalai Lama demonstrates that there are universal principles we will be able to draw on which transcend the catch 22 situation of belief or unbelief. And even as 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’re 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 may give 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 creator, but the wisdom of the culture he represents.
