Dharmic Capitalism

How does Dharma equate Capital and prosperity?

Conventional capitalism that runs the modern world requires free capital, slave labour and gullible consumers. Within the modern capitalist market place, resources are ripped from the earth, transformed and sold for profit.

The lifespan of many products is sometimes so short, the time from manufacture to waste is measured in days and the environmental, social and economic impact damaging to life.

The consequences of conventional capitalism are seen by many as a driver of our own extinction but along the way causes great pain, hardship and suffering. Conventional capitalism is related to or correlatable with a certain country and entities functioning as a military industrial complex to dominate our world.

Therapy

Anything that improves the human condition

Therapy is considered to be the treatment of disease or disorders, to be remedial, rehabilitating, or a curative process, a curative power or quality. With such a wide definition and our knowledge that what is good for one person is not necessarily good for another.

Therapy can be good food, good company, a day at the seaside, a good massage, a course of multibyte tablets, visiting the hairdresser or anything that makes an individual feel better about themselves at a mental level or feel better at a physical level. There are therapies for body and mind.

Often when we are feeling a little under part, when the body is not performing as one would

A Cronology of Hindu History

Re-Writing the narrative from emerging discoveries

Like many people seeking to know the truth of our existence I have questioned the historic narrative handed down to us through various governmental agencies tainted by religious and other belief systems. It comes down to a question of believing what might be true without evidence and seeking to find out what is true based on tangible evidence.

The Western, patriarchal capitalist point of view dominates the world and anyone would have to be pretty stupid to not see that the associated political structures are rotten to the core. They say nice things but do dastardly deeds in the name of power and profits. Conversely in the east and by East I mean east

Charity

A real need or a con?

Anywhere we go today in the modern world there will be beggars and charity collectors many who also knock on your door asking for money or support. Online there is a large amount of advertising trying to persuade you to give money to one charity or another and one must acknowledge that charity has become an industry.

Within democratic socialist societies, the nature or structure of that society is such that anyone without paid employment has no means of sustenance and therefore dependent on handouts. The state has tried to keep these people out of sight and out of mind and even today cities legislate to exclude the dispossessed. Should they transgress they

East vs West

Comparing a holistic against a superficial view

There is no doubt that the eastern world as philosophically and indeed spreadsheet different from the west. By the east a refer to the landmass that as today east of modern Iran previously known as Persia. Until the advent of Christianity and Islam, the civilised world was guided by Sanatana Dharma all the heart of Hindu (Indian) understanding.

If we take 6000 BC as a starting point of this discussion, Hindu civilisation was thriving and this is one of the proposed dates for the Mahabharata war. It is also a time when the Indus Valley civilisation was thriving with trade to Egypt, Greece and some

A Call for Change

And a New World Order based on Dharma

Further ideas towards saving humanity.

If the world continues on its present course, by the year 2050, the population will be over 9 billion and everyone will have to learn to survive on 40% less of everything that we enjoy today.

That’s less water, less oxygen, less materials to produce things and the way of modern agriculture we will also have 40% less land because that would been destroyed by agricultural chemical use.

At present we have democracies which have been co-opted by capitalism to serve the interests of the global elite. If we were able to wipe the slate and begin again, economically, everyone would own what

Defining Beauty

A state of perception

Beauty is a concept that crosses all of life, yet it’s as impossible to define as life itself, but there are some commonalities from passive perception to active experience.

At its root, beauty is mathematical as reprsented by the Fibonacci Sequence is the series of numbers, proportioned and pleasing to the eyes and is also expressed as the ‘golden mean’ or ‘golden ratio’.

Perception is an activity of our senses and to some extent influenced by our education, beliefs and state of mind. A depressed person may not recognise beauty as a happy person may do.

But as with life, there are many who attempt to decide for other’s what is beautiful and what is not,

Ghandi

Love him or hate him?

Most commonly known as Mahatma Gandhi, this iconic man is seen by some as the father of modern India and by others as a traitor to India. This post is in response to the more scathing comments circulating in the social media that just don’t go away.

And looking at is life and the consequences of it one must remember that he was educated according to British indoctrination. Like so many Hindus of the time, he may not have questioned the British idea of an Aryan invasion lifting the intellect and capacity of Hindus to participate in a modern world.

With his further education in London, the British narrative probably became more ingrained within
