The Dalai Lama’s Ethics for the New Millennium is rather compelling to read. This book’s central theme is based on the virtues of compassion, love, patience, forgiveness, and humility among others. He traces his life’s journey from Tibet to his home-in-exile India, travels, lectures, and observations about life. The Dalai Lama keeps reminding readers that although he is the spiritual leader of Tibet he is still a human being like all of us.
He discusses what it means to be like children, adolescents, adults, professionals, and senior citizens. Often the Dalai Lama encourages us to live up to our responsibility of being decent human beings. It is for us to have disciplined lives, to love our neighbors, help the poor and underprivileged, and strive for the betterment of humanity. That’s why it is best to practice restrain by working on doing no harm to others.
There are many things people could do to propagate peace in their lives. They ought to live in harmony with their families, neighbors, community, nation, and the world. According to the Dalai Lama people don’t have to be religious to do such things. A great deal of what we do should come from our heart. This is so because he believes that our basic goal in life is to be happy. This same happiness people should want for all others, including their family, neighbors, and even their enemies.
Concerning world peace the Dalai Lama wasn’t happy about those who work in building arms of mass destruction. He thinks that this is a waste of resources that could be spent more wisely. Yet he was hopeful that the major powers of the world cut back on their arsenals and find peace. This he realizes isn’t exactly easy because many professionals make their living through the military industrial complex. But he was hopeful that some international organizations like UNESCO could be more effective. Although the Dalai Lama realizes that members of the public don’t have a voice in this organization.
The Dalai Lama is for supporting efforts for the existence of a clean environment. He reminisced about what it was like growing up in Tibet amidst an abundance of wildlife - animals, birds, and other species. He deplores the deforestation of lands, pollution, and the hazards caused by the use of chemicals. He therefore hopes that all these problems would be solved by people playing their rightful part in society. And Dalai Lama believes that everyone – people of all classes, rich and poor, professionals, politicians, scientists, and entrepreneurs should live compassionately by upholding the virtues in building sustainable communities, nations, and the world.

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.

The Dalai Lama writes an inspirational book which proclaims that both the self and the world can be transformed by the cultivation of the following qualities of human spirit — love, compassion, patience, tolerance, forgiveness, a sense of responsibility, and a sense of harmony. I found this book an engaging and interesting read. There was no over the top preachiness, no "my religion is better than your religion" argument. There is a heartfelt wish for us to treat our fellow humans as equals using whichever religion or non-religion we find is most suited to ourselves.

A thought provoking book. ( )

In his down to earth, compassionate way, the Dalai Lama explains what it takes to be good, and how to live a life of happiness, without suffering. ( )

As a brief and necessarily general work, this book isn't exactly revelatory, but its simplicity is soothing and its message always welcome, however familiar. After all, there's a difference between being familiar with and remaining aware of ethical principles, not to mention the difference between remaining aware of and acting on them. For the duration of the book, I was at least aware.

Ultimately, I'd prefer a more specific discussion of how the Dalai Lama's experience and belief are relevant to a modern global society, particularly a discussion with more pointed comparisons and anecdotes, but for an introduction to universal ethics addressed to a broad audience, this is an admirable place to start.
