✏Ethics for the New Millennium Book Summary : Don't miss His Holiness the Dalai Lama's classic book, The Art of Happiness, or his newest, The Book of Joy, named one of Oprah's Favorite Things. In a difficult, uncertain time, it takes a person of great courage, such as the Dalai Lama, to give us hope. Regardless of the violence and cynicism we see on television and read about in the news, there is an argument to be made for basic human goodness. The number of people who spend their lives engaged in violence and dishonesty is tiny compared to the vast majority who would wish others only well. According to the Dalai Lama, our survival has depended and will continue to depend on our basic goodness. Ethics for the New Millennium presents a moral system based on universal rather than religious principles. Its ultimate goal is happiness for every individual, irrespective of religious beliefs. Though he himself a practicing Buddhist, the Dalai Lama's teachings and the moral compass that guides him can lead each and every one of us—Muslim, Christian, Jew, Buddhist, or atheist—to a happier, more fulfilling life. From the Trade Paperback edition.

✏Ancient Wisdom Modern World Book Summary : At a time and in a culture where science and technology have taken over from religious belief, when ethics are understood primarily in terms of aesthetic choice or legality, how are we to formulate moral principles to guide us in our daily lives? Though religion can certainly help in this, the Dalai Lama demonstrates that there are universal principles we can draw on which transcend the dilemma of belief or unbelief. And whilst many have been 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. With wit, gentle good sense and with penetrating insight, the Dalai Lama shows how the truths that have stood the test of generations of practise can provide us with the tools to live happy, fulfilled and meaningful lives. In the process, it becomes apparent that he does not merely espouse the 'feelgood' religiosity some accuse him of. The reader is left admiring not just the wisdom of the author, but the wisdom of the culture he represents.

✏Along The Thomasine Path Book Summary : Along The Thomasine Path is a groundbreaking collection of rituals, readings, and resources for spiritual seekers who have turned their backs on Christianity because of those on the religious right who have hijacked the teachings of Jesus and tried to force their divisive agenda upon every aspect of American life. With clarity and insight, author Donald Bruce Stouder finally welcomes back the sermon as a powerful literary form, and uses it to fashion a faith that makes sense in modern times. He has also developed rituals that can be used by individuals or groups to deepen their spirituality as they discover new ways to build faith and community. Describing the faith of liberal, progressive Christians, Along The Thomasine Path introduces us to The Thomas Christians, a small community of clergy and lay people who honor the teachings of Jesus found in The Gospel of Thomas, and who believe in a faith that is radically inclusive and compassionate. Along The Thomasine Path offers readers a refreshing vision of a Christian faith that welcomes all people, and a powerful criticism of the institutional religious right.

✏Beyond Religion Book Summary : In 1999 His Holiness The Dalai Lama published the bestselling Ancient Wisdom: Modern World, which addressed the question of ethics for the new millennium. A decade later, His Holiness enters the contemporary debate about religion vs atheism, and returns to the theme of ethics with a major new work: Beyond Religion: ethics for a whole world. In this thought-provoking new book he argues that religion is not a necessity for pursuing a spiritual life. Rather, focusing on tolerance and understanding between religions, as well as tolerance and understanding between believers (of any faith) and non-believers is the way forward. The way to achieve such an approach, he proposes, is through a system of secular ethics grounded in a deep appreciation of our common humanity. Aimed particularly at the general reader, Beyond Religion: ethics for a whole world is a modern-day polemic which outlines those ethics he believes should be central to our lives.

✏Psychiatry in the New Millennium Book Summary : In an era where scientific advances frequently make even the most recent scientific or medical journal articles dated soon after their publication, it is more crucial than ever for practitioners to be able to effectively evaluate new information. Using the millennium as a benchmark for surveying progress in the field, this indispensable volume captures the current state of the discipline and considers its future evolution. Key chapters by some of the field's most respected practitioners consider the impact of changing conceptual, organizational, and philosophical issues, as well as of neuroscience research findings, on the shape of the discipline. The current and future relevance of psychoanalysis; the role of social psychiatry as translator and bridge between the worlds of treatment, practice, and public policy; and the need for a new multiaxial diagnostic system that addresses motive and meaning as well as the biological and genetic contributions to behavior are just a few of the issues explored. Other chapters consider the role of genetics and molecular biology in research on mental illness; the potential uses of functional brain imaging in clinical practice; a clinical model for selecting psychotherapy and/or pharmacotherapy; and the challenge of developing research methods for assessing treatment effectiveness. Also examined are issues such as practice guidelines, managed care and the financing of mental health treatment, and the ethical conduct of the psychiatrist. The book's final chapters survey the psychiatric workforce of today and tomorrow, including its composition and education, and, finally, offer predictions about psychiatry in the next century. In Psychiatry in the New Millennium, psychiatrists and residents alike will find information vital to their understanding of both this century's psychiatric foundations and the next century's new discoveries.
