ANCIENT WISDOM, MODERN WORLD

Ethics for the New Millenium

by Tenzin Gyatso, His Holiness the Dalai Lama

Abacus, 2001, hardcover, ISBN 0-316-85863-3

UK 14.99 , 246 pp, Very Highly Recommended

Tenzin Gyatso, the fourteenth Dalai Lama of Tibet, is a political and religious leader , winner of the Nobel Peace prize and famous worldwide.

In this book he writes about ethics and how we can find truth and other fundamental qualities that lead to happiness. It is neither a religious book nor a book about Buddhism, but a book based on universal principles.

A sophisticated ,yet clearly written book , it is by no means a quick read. Personally speaking, I had to stop several times at certain pages to think more about the concepts mentioned.

First, the author speaks about ethics generally, and then shows their connection with the individual and their relation to society by supporting his ideas with simple examples illustrating every day life. He explains in his own unique way some human truths and qualities that, if applied, can bring people happiness, peace of mind and consequently show them the meaning of life.

ANCIENT WISDOM, MODERN WORLD, is a good intensive read for both philosophy lovers and for all those who wish to improve their life.
