An important and highly relevant message about how religions can find common ground delivered directly from His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
No country, no culture, no person today is untouched by what happens in the rest of the world and globalisation presents many challenges. The Dalai Lama understands that the essential task of humanity in the twenty-first century must be to cultivate peaceful coexistence.
In this book the Dalai Lama shows how in our globalised world, nations, cultures and individuals can find opportunities to connect through their shared human nature. All faiths turn to compassion as a guiding principle for living a good life. It is the responsibility of all people with an aspiration to spiritual perfection to help develop a deep recognition of the value of other faiths and it is on that basis alone that we can cultivate genuine respect and cooperation.
TOWARDS THE TRUE KINSHIP OF FAITHS is a hopeful yet realistic look at how humanity can embrace a harmonious future.
His Holiness the Dalai Lama is the spiritual leader of the Tibetan people. He has resided in exile in Dharamsala, India, since 1959 when Chinese forces invaded Tibet. His tireless efforts on behalf of world peace have brought him international recognition, including the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989.
