Book review: ‘Beyond Religion’ by the Dalai Lama

After a lifetime of Buddhist reflection, he suggests that religion is tea to the water of compassion. Tea is nutritious, water essential.


Now, as he steps down as leader of Tibet, the perpetually smiling monk in saffron and burgundy robes makes in “Beyond Religion: Ethics for a Whole World” what some may regard as a heretical pronouncement: You don’t need religion to lead a happy and ethical life.
