This course motivates an individual to refocus on what really is important in life regardless of career choice, and that is to always have patience, kindness, and forgiveness for one's self and others, and to offer those virtues through empathy, compassion, and unconditional love. In the spirit of genuine humility, not for self-serving personal benefit. That this perspective inspires each of us to impact our communities and the world, one person at a time, with spontaneous loving kindness, the basic quality everyone requires for happiness.

This course was really a refreshing look at ethics. I was looking for something different than the usual ethics classes and I was very excited to find this one. The material was very through provoking and I had to read it slowly and go back and re-read at times for the depth of information to be absorbed. The course took longer than I expected, but it was with it as it was so profound. Thank you for offering this great work from the Dalai Lama.

I was inspired by this courses and appreciated an ethics course that was not just about “ Do this, Don't do that”. It encouraged me to look deep within and become more consciously aware of how our thoughts, feeling, and actions affect out fellow human beings and ethically what our responsibilities are to others (including the earth and other life forms).

Glad that this course was beyond the standard type of Ethics classes. It was much more than a review of Ethics and practices. The Dalai Lama has a deep understanding of human behavior and it was worth the effort and time to dive into.

Ethics: From the Dalai Lama was the best ethics class I have taken. Standard ethics does not compare with the depth of study that this course offers. This course has depth and explores the topic on a broader level.
