Beyond Religion: An Ethic for a Whole World

Print
Written by Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalia Lama

The world's various religions have not succeeded in establishing a just and compassionate civilization on Earth.  Mankind still views nature with an extractive eye.  The future of planet Earth is in peril unless humanity changes course.  In Beyond Religion, the Dalia Lama asks for a secular ethic, not religion-based, which teaches children to be caring, loving, compassionate, to appreciate nature and to nurture and sustain the environment.  A secular ethic, he suggests, should be part of the fundamental curriculum taught to all children.  (see The Politics of Meaning by Rabbi Michael Lerner).
