      The Book of Dharma charts Simon Haas’s journey to India and his “excavation” of the Dharma Code, a powerful system for making enlightened choices and directing our life more consciously. In this ground-breaking book, Haas discloses these ancient, transformative teachings for contemporary Western readers, for the first time openly revealing a knowledge that has been passed down in /5(65).   In my review of Disorienting Dharma (Adluri ), I showed that Hudson failed to understand the concept of dharma in the Mahābhārata (see ibid., 5–7). Rather than reprise those criticisms here, I wish to show that this failure was not accidental: it derived directly from the application of an implicit Protestant hermeneutic to the text to generate an antinomian reading of : Vishwa Adluri.

    Disorienting Dharma: Ethics and the Aesthetics of Suffering in the Mahabharata Oxford University Press, The Awards for Excellence and Best First Book in the History of Religions recognize new scholarly publications that make significant contributions to the study of religion. The purpose of dharma is not only to attain a union of the soul with the supreme reality, it also suggests a code of conduct that is intended to secure both worldly joys and supreme happiness. Rishi Kanda has defined dharma in Vaisesika as “that confers worldly joys and leads to supreme happiness”.

      Several people have asked for reading suggestions, since there are so many dharma books out there. It is really, really difficult to know where to start. So, here is my list of a beginner’s guide. I start with the disclaimer that I am mostly coming from . Dharma. e wholeness of the message may well be missed. So empty the mind whilst reading this book. Indeed, see it as an opportunity for meditation, where you are clearing the mind of thoughts and obstructions, and stay concentrated on the Dharma in this book. e File Size: KB.
