Beyond Religion by the Dalai Lama - Free Audio Book

Audible gave us a free copy of the Dalai Lama's new book, "Beyond Religion: Ethics for a Whole World". It is a wise book full of insight for individuals who want to better their lives, with a prophetic message for universal peace and compassion. It also provides a wonderful introduction to meditation.

We admire the Dalai Lama's simple and powerful style of writing, his insight into human nature and we aspire to share his essential naive goodness. His promotional materials for the book tell us:
...the Dalai Lama, at his most compassionate and outspoken, elaborates and deepens his vision for the nonreligious way. Transcending the mere "religion wars," he outlines a system of secular ethics that gives tolerant respect to religion—those that ground ethics in a belief in God and an afterlife, and those that understand good actions as leading to better states of existence in future lives. And yet, with the highest level of spiritual and intellectual authority, the Dalai Lama makes a claim for what he calls a third way. This is a system of secular ethics that transcends religion as a way to recognize our common humanity and so contributes to a global human community based on understanding and mutual respect
The audio book is free to download until 12/20/2011.
