“May the effort of this book be of benefit to the emergence of a genuine understanding between the world’s great religions, and may it foster in us deep reverence toward each other.”
The Dalai Lama
Toward a True Kinship of Faiths by the Dalai Lama
$24.95 inc GST
In perhaps his most important book, the Dalai Lama shares his hopeful and realistic views on how the world’s religions must peacefully coexist. New technology, environmental stresses, economic gain and loss, and ease of instant communication have all created unprecedented familiarity and closeness among the world’s many cultures. All major religions confront the same perennial questions and each has its own distinct answers. The diversity of these insights can inspire dialogue that can enrich everyone’s pursuit of wisdom.
In Toward a True Kindship of Faiths, the Dalai Lama explores how differences between religions can be appreciated instead of becoming sources of conflict. Creating genuine harmony does not depend on accepting that all religions are fundamentally the same or that they lead to the same place. The Dalai Lama shows how sincere believers can, with integrity, be pluralists in relation to other religions without compromising commitment to the essence of the doctrinal teachings of their own faith.
