Publisher's Summary

The ancient texts of India speak of a “knowledge for kings, guarded by kings”. The Book of Dharma charts Simon Haas’ journey to India and his “excavation” of the dharma code: a powerful system for making enlightened choices and manifesting our highest potential. Haas apprenticed with an elderly master practitioner in the Bhakti tradition for 16 years and learned from him the system formerly used by kings and queens to effect personal transformation in their lives and rule wisely.  

Sun Tzu’s The Art of War and Niccolò Machiavelli’s The Prince were written specifically for rulers. While these works have become renowned, the teachings for kings and queens from India remain, to this day, largely undiscovered. In this groundbreaking audiobook, Haas discloses these teachings for contemporary Western listeners, for the first time openly revealing a knowledge that has been passed down in secrecy in a sacred tradition for millennia.

What an amazing book of knowledge.

Can't wait to listen again! Should be a requirement in highschool's around the world. Eyes and ears would be opened to the truth and humans would start actually living their best lives.

Dharma explained w/o having to live in a monastery

It was a nice interweaving of Vedic texts, Western philosophers like Schrodinger and Einstein, with the author's personal life.

The 4 principles are Absolute Truths but also a lifelong skill on how to properly apply them.

Just be prepared:
The Book Chapters aren't named, only numbered. My notes needed extra detail to come back to a section.

Also, there are intermittent gong sounds per section. I had to stop listening to the Audible through headsets because it was very harsh. i recommend using Speakers or car audio only.

Narration ruined an interesting and useful book

The narrator of this book has only one tone and speaks as if he's trying to hypnotise us. I have the book but have only read a few chapters so thought I'd listen instead. I managed to get to the end of the book but due to the intensely dull narration, I didn't take a word of it in. A great shame because I think it is a very interesting and helpful book.
