I've been reading about the connection between religion and ethics, and I came across this quote by HHDL:
All the world’s major religions, with their emphasis on love, compassion, patience, tolerance, and forgiveness can and do promote inner values. But the reality of the world today is that grounding ethics in religion is no longer adequate. This is why I am increasingly convinced that the time has come to find a way of thinking about spirituality and ethics beyond religion altogether.
The 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, 10 September 2012
Now Buddhism is big on ethics, sila is a prominent part of the Noble Eightfold Path, but other religions put a less determined emphasis on it. What do you think a non-religious ethics should be like? How should it be folded into different religions?
