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 and head of the Tibetan government-in-exile. His tireless efforts on behalf of human rights, world peace, and basic human values have brought him international recognition. A recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize, he travels the world speaking on peace, giving Buddhist teachings and meeting with political leaders, as he works tirelessly for Tibet.
