Publishers Weekly, 2012-04-30 In this follow-up to Ethics for a New Millennium, H.H. Dalai Lama offers an inspired new take on a standard set of ethics for all humans, regardless of race, sex, or creed. Far more outspoken than ever before, his teachings are an urgent plea for all people to adhere to inherent human values. Seasoned performer Martin Sheen tackles the tough task of reading such a noble figure's work, and does so with tremendous poise and respect. Sheen's style is straightforward and personal, as if he's speaking directly to a single listener rather than an audience of millions. His narration is swift but appropriate, and Sheen captures both the Dalai Lama's wisdom and everyman approach to the material. This is an informative and thought-provoking listen that will appeal to listeners of every social background. A Houghton Mifflin Harcourt hardcover. (Dec.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

Publishers Weekly, 2011-10-10 In this concise book packed with ideas, His Holiness the Dalai Lama (Toward a True Kinship of Faiths) continues his case for a universal ethics rooted in compassion. He argues that religion with its diversity can never provide an ethics for everyone in today's interconnected global society, and he then makes a strong statement for adopting a "secular ethics." Identifying the primary societal problem as "giving too much attention to the external material aspects of life while neglecting moral ethics and inner values," His Holiness locates the initial responsibility for change in the individual; the book's second half includes practical approaches for "ethical mindfulness" based on Buddhist mind training, such as counteracting destructive emotions, cultivating positive virtues, and meditation. Continuing his longstanding interest in the empirical bases for Buddhist findings, the Dalai Lama supports some of his observations through science. The book's impressive scope in a short span also includes discussions of human nature, interdependence, justice, forgiveness, philanthropy, and the challenges society faces today. This wise, humane book, an original work rather than a collection of talks, is an incisive statement of His Holiness's thinking on ways to bring peace to a suffering world.
