March 2004 The Dalai Lama Foundation 1 Preface This Study Guide has been prepared by a group of six friends associated with The Dalai Lama Foundation. We have been meeting regularly since November 2002, in Los Altos, California. Each month we review a chapter of Ethics for the New Millennium and take it as the starting point for an in-depth exploration of ethics in our own lives. Our intention is to make this Study Guide available widely, through the Dalai Lama Foundation, to anyone who might want to start such a study group with their friends or colleagues. We offer it in the spirit of sharing an experience we have found meaningful and helpful in our own lives. This document is available for downloading from the Dalai Lama Foundation website at http://www.dalailamafoundation.org/studyguide Our sincere wish is that this Study Guide serve as a support for many around the world as they strive to develop their own ethical practice and lay a strong foundation for their own happiness.

Study Guide for Ethics for the New Millennium by His Holiness the Dalai Lama March 2004 The Dalai Lama Foundation 2 Introduction to Ethics for the New Millennium Ethics for the New Millennium is addressed to a general audience. It presents a moral framework based on universal rather than religious principles. It rests on the observation that those whose conduct is ethically positive are happier and more satisfied and the belief that much of the unhappiness we humans endure is actually of our own making. Its ultimate goal is happiness for every individual, irrespective of religious belief.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
