[PDF / Epub] ☀ The Book of Dharma: Making Enlightened Choices ✍ Simon Haas – Tactical-player.co.uk
Beautifully designed and laid out, thoroughly researched, this is a book that deserves to be read.The Book of Dharma discloses a set of four ancient principles to help us make the very best choices in our life The author begins by pointing out that we make choices continually in life Most of our choices are unconscious, the product of unseen habits of thought and behaviour In this ground breaking book, Haas, who grew up as a monk in the temple monasteries of India, explains the process of inward looking perception , by which we can enhance our ability to make conscious choices in everyday life He then reveals the four principles of Dharma, which act as navigational stars to guide us in our life by helping us make enlightened choices.This timeless wisdom was once used by kings and queens to rule vast kingdoms Haas shows us how this knowledge from the past can help us overcome the challenges of life we face in the present He shows us how we can use it to govern the territory of our everyday life.I have been interested in the wisdom of ancient India for many years but the in depth books available on the subject are often full of Sanskrit terms and largely inaccessible for Western readers In this book, Haas makes these ancient, profound teachings accessible and relevant for readers of our times without compromising on authenticity This is one of the first books in this genre in which the author does not position himself as a guru, or enlightened teacher, but shares his own everyday struggles in applying these teachings.I especially liked how The Book of Dharma does not try to offer a simplistic formula for resolving the existential challenges of living This is not a how to self help book Rather, it is a book of ancient wisdom, a set of teachings passed down from master to student for thousands of years The teachings of Dharma are designed, I think, to help us adopt a reflective approach in our life At a time when our lives seem to be getting ever hectic and anxiety ridden, a book like this one, which reminds us of the cornerstones of good living, couldn t be valuable.

I have a system whereby I keep books I enjoyed to reread them This was one of those books I recently re read this book and I am happy that I kept it.I think that it s laid out really well clear and concise with good headings The author is clearly very knowledgeable and genuine in his interest to convey his message I would recommend it to anyone who likes reading about Eastern Philosophy.
