Outlines a system of secular ethics that both transcends religion and incorporates religious tolerance for the overall improvement of human life on individual, community, and global levels, offering an accompanying guided meditation practice for cultivating key human values.
His Holiness the Dalai Lama has long been a proponent of a set of ethics propped on moral rather than strictly religious guidelines. Here, he espouses a moral teaching that respects the various world faiths while also transcending them. He advises readers to seek social and spiritual interconnectivity, and to be aware of how we each contribute to each other's happiness (or unhappiness). He counsels people to learn how to manage challenging emotions like anger and fear.
