Nouvelle réalité : l’âge de la responsabilité universelle Broché – 6 avril 2016 de Dalaï-Lama (Auteur), SOFIA STRIL REVER (Auteur)
L’effondrement de la biosphère à l’échelle planétaire fait planer une menace d’extinction sur la vie terrestre. Cette crise est révélatrice d’une Nouvelle Réalité. Le Dalaï-lama exhorte chacun à se transformer par la paix intérieure, l’altruisme et la compassion. La prise de conscience de nos interdépendances, intuition singulièrement moderne de la sagesse bouddhiste ancestrale, est partagée désormais par le pape, les scientifiques et les philosophes. Pour survivre à ce millénaire, l’humanité doit réaliser que tout est relié, de l’infiniment petit à l’infiniment grand. Le Manifeste de la Responsabilité universelle est un texte inédit mettant en lumière la communauté de destin de l’humanité. Ecrit à partir d’entretiens exclusifs avec Sofia Stril-Rever, ce livre d’engagement personnel et politique est porteur d’un espoir pour le monde. Le Dalaï-lama offre sa contribution à la réflexion contemporaine sur les responsabilités humaines et les devoirs envers les générations futures.
My Appeal to the World Hardcover – March 10, 2015
by Dalai Lama (Author), Sofia Stril-Rever (Compiler), Robert Thurman (Foreword)
His Holiness the Fourteenth Dalai Lama is the foremost spokesperson for the people of the Tibetan Plateau—although his home is in India, in the Himalayan foothills, where he has been forced to live in exile since 1959. As a Buddhist monk, his main focus has been the spiritual life, and the leadership of his people in exile, ensuring their survival and preserving their unique Buddhist culture, while appealing to the world to stop the destruction of their homeland and the six million Tibetans oppressed within it.
Every March 10th, from 1961 until 2011, in commemoration of the greatest uprising of the Tibetan people against the Chinese military occupation, the Dalai Lama delivered an appeal to the world on behalf of his people. Each statement is a heartfelt call to recognize the truth and the factual reality of Tibet’s history and situation; a cry for help, a plea for justice, and a pledge of determination to withstand the worst and to overcome. In these annual addresses, he began to articulate and fully express his overarching appeal to humanity.
All of the Dalai Lama’s March 10th speeches, at their most poignant and eloquent, are collected here, introduced and historically contextualized by Sofia Stril-Rever, an author and scholar of Tibetan history and culture and Buddhist spirituality who has long served as his French translator.
Here in this book is his appeal to us all. The people of all nations have heard it and have tried to help, but their governments still have not dared to stand up effectively for justice on behalf of the Tibetan people and for recognition of the basic human rights to which we all are entitled.
The question therefore remains: Who will finally respond to this appeal in time to prevent the ultimate disaster that is looming on the roof of the world?

Beyond Religion: Ethics for a Whole World Paperback – November 6, 2012
by Dalai Lama (Author)
“A book that brings people together on the firm grounds of shared values, reminding us why the Dalai Lama is still one of the most important religious figures in the world.” —Huffington Post, “Best Religious Books of 2011”
Ten years ago, in the best-selling Ethics for a New Millennium, His Holiness the Dalai Lama first proposed an approach to ethics based on universal rather than religious principles. With Beyond Relgion, he returns to the conversation at his most outspoken, elaborating and deepening his vision for the nonreligious way—a path to lead an ethical, happy, and spiritual life. Transcending the religion wars, he outlines a system of ethics for our shared world, one that makes a stirring appeal for a deep appreciation of our common humanity, offering us all a road map for improving human life on individual, community, and global levels.
“Cogent and fresh . . . This ethical vision is needed as we face the global challenges of technological progress, peace, environmental destruction, greed, science, and educating future generations.” —Spirtuality & Practice
Ethics for the New Millennium Paperback – May 1, 2001
by Dalai Lama (Author)
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.
