A publication on the Arya Dharma (Noble Dharma) — A better way of living, spirituality, wellbeing, government, finance, economics, law and democracy by going back to the future.
Bharata has the greatest history, heritage and culture ever possessed by any civilization in the history of the Universe.
It is a real shame of what we have become today because we blindly try to ape and emulate the fraud FUKUS (France, UK, USA) systems which are totally unsuitable not only to us, but to any country on this planet, and especially harmful to Nature, the supreme embodiment of Brahman (God).
It really makes you wonder about the state of this world, when the priceless Amazon rain forest is valued at $20 million, and the Amazon online shopping website is valued at almost a trillion dollars.
It really makes you wonder about the state of this world, when the top 1% possesses more than 47% percent of the global wealth, while the bottom half still worries about scrounging for their next meal.
If Bharat must have any hope of restoring its past glory, it must abandon all the fraud FUKUS systems which place only money and self-interest as their guiding principle, over Dharma and SEVA (Selfless Sacrifice), which were our eternal guiding principles that were laid down ever since Ram Rajya.
Dharma and SEVA were the guiding principles of the Golden Era of Bharat, when we surpassed even the Roman, Greek and Persian empires and even made a world conqueror like Alexander retreat in fearful haste without even daring to fight us.

My take on the book:

Arya Dharma : The Noble Dharma is an attempt by the author to highlight the drawbacks and materialistic approach the culture from the Western countries has, especially France, UK and USA. The author also explains how the ancient dharma from India, the erstwhile Bharath, has its roots in centuries of culture which is being forgotten by the current generation to emulate the Western culture. The author does a details dissection of both these contrasting cultures and at the end proposes Arya Dharma, which will function as the beckoning light for the coming years.

The author has done thorough research which reflects in the book as he explores multiple dimensions of a culture and how it is adapted by the citizens. Governance, administration, stages of life, civilization — the author touches upon every possible aspect related to human living. At the start the book will feel huge will 600 pages length but that is because the author has explained many concepts in a detailed manner that once the reader gets engrossed, the length would not matter. The book is very informative and would appeal to those looking to understand ancient Indian culture. The enormous history of Indian that is generally not captured in our academic books has been summarized in one single book by the author.

The author also provides lot of references so that the reader can further read about topics of interest. The cover is very interesting and a mirror for the content to be found inside. This book is unlike any of the non-fiction books we usually come across as it will urge the reader to think even after the book is completed. Pick this one if you always wanted to have a wholesome read about Indian’s history, culture and ancient civilizations.
