The bestselling new book by the Dalai Lama, in which he calls for a spiritual revolution. With wit, insight and good sense he demonstrates that there are universal principles we can draw on which transcend the dilemma of belief and disbelief. In the first instance, he says, a spiritual revolution entails an ethical revolution, and whilst many are content to speak of spiritual matters as something mysterious or evanescent, the Dalai Lama explains his approach in terms that are as clear and concise as they are compelling.
"All the qualities he proposes are achievable and are things we could practice daily by showing just a little extra thought for our fellow beings...Ancient Wisdom, Modern World is a clearly written and straightforward book which, I think, achieves its purpose of approaching ethics based on universal rather than religious principles." The Spectator.
