Book: Ancient Wisdom, Modern World - Ethics for the New Millenium by Tenzin Gyatso (the Dalai Lama)


Ancient Wisdom, Modern World is a worthy, plainly written book that engenders an overall sense of oneness and provides a strong motivating force to do good to our fellow man. While focused on the spiritual, the book is deliberately not religious and instead focuses on universal ethics and the importance of cultivating ethical behaviour through deliberate effort.

Reading the book is a calming and reflective exercise in itself but putting the words into practice will be more challenging, though well worth attempting.

There are a great many quotes from this book to post to this blog for posterity. Instead of posting a bucket-load in a single sitting, I will post a few quotes every day through next week or so. Something to look forward to.
