HAT BOOK GROUP: Sat June 1, OISE, 2:30 "Beyond religion"

HAT BOOK GROUP MEETING DATE: JUNE 1 2013 at OISE, 262 Bloor Street West, from 2:30-4: TITLE DISCUSSED: Beyond Religion: ethics for a whole world By the Dalai Lama, 2011, 188 pages -20 copies available in the Library. FACILITATOR: Jodi Perrin "The Dalai Lama is the leader of one of the most influential religious traditions of the world. Over his years of struggle with the largest atheistic regime (China) and of exile in the largest secular democracy (India) he has come to the conclusion that we need an ethic for humanity based on common human values. “Beyond Religion” is his most recent attempt to present an ethical stance for persons of any religious background or none. Could we find some of his thoughts useful in building our humanist worldstance?"
