Free audiobook: Beyond Religion

Ethics for a Whole World by the Dalai Lama, narrated by Martin Sheen. Grab this nearly 6 hour download from Audible here: http://www.audible.com/pd?asin=B0069A03IY&source_code=FBIFP9002WS120511. Free through December 20th. The description on the Audible site reads, “His Holiness 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, but, with the highest level of spiritual and intellectual authority, makes a claim for what the Dalai Lama calls a third way. This is a universal code of ethics that transcends religion boundaries, that recognizes our common humanity and advocates for a global human community based on understanding and mutual respect.”
