By being intimately concerned with the welfare of others we are on the path to true happiness. Dharma the law of virtue and caring for all is the greatest gift we can give our children.
In The Power of Dharma, Dr.Nicholas Sutton and Hemal Randerwala reveal through ancient Hindu scriptures a way of viewing the world which opens our hearts and minds. They illustrate how Compassion, non-violence and truth are the flags for this philosophy and how our lives should not be dictated by dogma but thoughtfully examined at every level. They show us the significance and importance of ancient knowledge for the global village.
As we become embodiments of Dharma and compassion we natuarally extend our circles of care to include greater numbers becoming agents of moral transformation in society. The Power of Dharma gives seekers of all faiths and those of no faith the tools to fulfil human responsibility – to care for the earth and all living beings- to manifest Dharma. With all of the global issues we face It is quite possible that the messages of this book have never been so important.
