Vrij van religie – Een pleidooi voor vrede, compassie en welzijn

Door de Dalai Lama, vertaling door Bert van Baar.

186 Pagina´s | 2014, tweede druk | Hardcover | Milinda Uitgevers bv, Rotterdam | ISBN: 9789056702953.

Oospronkelijke titel: Beyond Religion, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2011

Om een harmonieuze en vreedzame wereld te bouwen, hebben we meer nodig dan alleen tolerantie en begrip tussen de verschillende religies.

Hoe kunnen we betere mensen worden? Z.H. de Dalai Lama wil met dit boek mensen stimuleren hun fundamentele menselijke waarden te ontwikkelen. Hoe werkt dit? In dit baanbrekende nieuwe boek zet hij zijn visie openhartig uiteen.

Iedereen die vervulling, welzijn en geluk wil bereiken, dient fundamentele menselijke waarden als compassie, vergeving, geduld en tolerantie te cultiveren. Van oudsher richten mensen zich tot een religie om hun menselijke waarden te ontwikkelen. De Dalai Lama begrijpt dat dit tegenwoordig voor velen niet meer opgaat. Hij wil niet alleen de tegenstellingen tussen gelovigen en ongelovigen overbruggen, maar ook die tussen de aanhangers van de verschillende religies.

Het tweede deel van het boek gaat over de praktische training van de geest, oefeningen om onze innerlijke waarden te ontwikkelen. De oefeningen zijn geschikt voor iedereen en direct gericht op het omzetten van destructieve emoties in menselijke waarden. Ethiek en menselijke waarden zijn volgens de Dalai Lama de basis voor een vreedzame en rechtvaardige samenleving, waarin iedereen zijn potentieel volledig kan ontwikkelen.

Mystical Verses of a Mad Dalai Lama

By Glenn H. Mullin, Foreword by His Holiness The Dalai Lama.

270 Pages | First Quest Edition 1994 | Softcover | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN: 0835607003.

The Tibetan tradition of mystical verse is brought stunningly to life by renowned translator Glenn Mullin through these spontaneous outpourings of the ecstasy of enlightenment. Step into the visionairy of the outspoken and unconventional Second Dalai Lama, who was ‘crazed’ by the wisdom of the nature of reality. Prefaced by a readable and comprehensive introduction to the life and times of this wise exponent of spiritual knowledge, these poems are shining, lyric illuminations of Buddhist life. Each is prefaced by a translator’s preamble.

From Chapter 11 – ‘A Prayer of Pure Aspirations’ (p. 193):

Part One: A Call to the Guru:

” Most kind root guru, who always rests

On a sun and moon above my head,

I, a humble disciple, call out to you

With emotion surging in the depths of my heart.

From wherever you may physically be in this world,

Send forth a mystical emanation to heed me.

Reveal your radiant countenance to me;

And may we never ever become parted. “

The Opening of the Wisdom-Eye – And the History of the Advancement of Buddhadharma in Tibet

By His Holiness the XIVth Dalai Lama.

178 Pages | First Adyar edition, fourth reprint 2015| Paperback | The Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar ISBN: 9788170591245.

This important book by the Dalai Lama the gives an authentic account of the teachings of Tibetan Buddhism. It is hoped that its publication will contribute to a greater understanding of Tibetan culture. The main part of the book is preceded by a short account of the spread of Buddhism in Tibet, also written by His Holiness. The whole range of Buddhist teachings as practised in Tibet is expounded with great clarity, yet with brevity.

From page 12:


” According to Buddhist tradition, the present era is called the time for virtue (śila-kāla) being one of the divisions of the five-thousand year period during which it is said the teaching of the fourth Buddha to appear in this Aeon, will actually endure. The most important religious feature of this era lies in the observance of the moral precepts. “

Kundun – A Biography of the Family of the Dalai Lama

By Mary Craig.

391 Pages | First published in Great Britain, first paperback edition 1998 | Paperback | Counterpoint, Washington | ISBN: 1887178910.

Here is the story of Tibet as told by its remarkable first family – a story of reïncarnation, coronation, heartbreaking exile, and finally the tenacious efforts of a holy man to save a nation and its people.

From the Foreword:

” We Tibetans are resilient, patient and resourceful. Ours is just a cause. We continue to be confident that the truth will ultimately triumph and our land and people will once more be free. Would the Chinese consider the Tibetan question so sensitive if our cause was dead? Under difficult circumstances we have kept the Tibetan spirit and a sense of hope alive. However, it is clear that these efforts alone will not be sufficient to bring about a final positive solution. Therefore, I appeal to the readers of this book to support the Tibetan people, so that ultimately they may again live in peace and dignity.

His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. “

From Chapter ‘Lord of the Lion Throne’, p. 68:

” He is supposed to be the temporary embodiment of a god . . . called upon to lead, comfort and improve sinful, sufferinf mankind, and to teach the way to release. It is throughout the same being who sits on the Lhasa throne in successive embodiments. The secret person, the spiritual reality of the Dalai Lama, is immutable and only his body changes, a perishable vessel employed to reach down to the lowly human level and to make the dazzling light of the truth he embodies accessible to our limited understanding. ”
