The Dharma Manifesto

A New Vision for Global Transformation

If you are a regular reader of this blog site, you will know that the content represents a search for truth, knowledge and solution to the world’s problems. It’s become clear that the only sustainable way forward is for humanity is by following a lifestyle consistent with Dharma.

To put Dharma into a nutshell, it is a way of life to ensure humankind’s continued survival into the unforeseeable future. The modern world seems bent on self-destruction and many are arguing that such a scenario is imminent. Some predict the end of humanity within the next hundred years as conflict, squabbles over resources and the

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

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

Lord Shiva in the Bible

Tracing the origins of Judaism and Christianity

In examining our history and learning that the out of Africa theory is on shaky ground and some other theories in regard to indigenous origins of modern humans remain in contention. It also seems apparent that there has been considerable mixing of subspecies between each other and between modern humans so we may never trace our exact ancestry that far back.

The identified identified first modern human remains have been identified at Jebel Irhoud, Morocco and dated to 300K BC. In contrast, “the find at the prehistoric site of Attirampakkam, India, has shown the potential of a Middle Palaeolithic culture at 385 ± 64 thousand years ago (ka), much earlier than conventionally

Conversion Kills

A time to outlaw this practise

Since time immemorial perhaps since people were able to convey ideas to each other through the use of words or gestures, there has been a desire to convince others that one’s original idea is right and should be followed. It may have been as simple as we will find better hunting by going this way.

Over time some ideas proved worthy and some individuals became more authoritative because their ideas were proven. Then people listened and took note, those with the best ideas became leaders which was all very well in matters to do with basic survival. But in the realm of more intangible knowledge like defining God, there can be no collective

Global Genocide List

Atrocities at the behest of emotion and reason

Genocide takes many forms and represents humankind’s incapacity to be human and a degree of inhumanity towards one’s fellow man that is beyond the understanding of the rational mind.

Genocides take many forms, at one level there is an aversion to a neighbouring community and the development of aggression followed in some cases by complete extermination.

In addition to total genocides where entire populations are reduced near to zero, the art of cultural genocide continues today as Christianity for instance attempts to replace scientific paganism and other cultural practices as does its offshoot Islam that will happily commit genocide as it does in Kashmir and Myanmar.

This is only a partial

Dealing to Our Trash

An element destroying our habitat

This subject is a no-brainer. If we are going to want stuff, it should do what we want and last a lifetime. If we think of our most basic requirements for life the land we depend on for growing our food should be kept in pristine condition yet every year we are dumping millions of tons of harmful chemicals into our soils for short-term increased production and ease of management.

Our cell phones and electronic devices are one of the most contentious issues because the manufacturers what you to buy a new device every year and discard the old which has a finite life. This was exacerbated by Apple who were accused of rolling

Redefining Law

Ideas to save our world

Some of us take time out to reflect on who we are but most are so firmly bound to the wheel of samsara, the illusion of life by their karma that they do not take time or even have time to reflect. This was probably also the case in the most ancient of times when all effort went into survival with momentary time out for recreation and pleasure.

The earliest known laws are encoded within the Rig Veda then further expanded and refined by Manu, the first known lawgiver who is thought to have lived somewhere between 5000 and 3000 BC. “The Law Code of Manu, has more than 2500 laws, although about 1000

A New Paradigm in Law

An ancient rational to be revived

From part one

In part one I have given an overview of how the law has been corrupted to serve the rich and powerful at the expense of not only the people but of continued human existence and life on earth therefore a new paradigm in law is way overdue. I don’t expect these ideas will be a more successful than attempts to save the Amazon rainforest or the Great Barrier Reef yet these ideas must be expressed and perhaps at some point before we go extinct some of the rich and powerful may find their social consciences awakening to the reality that is looking them in the face.

The ultimate prize in

India Begat Egypt

Tracing our ancient origins

In the first of the BBC programs on the history of Egypt narrated by Bettany Hughes, the film opens with her describing a large block of what looked like just a big block of sandstone. Bethany describes as rock as an original depiction of a bull created around 5000 BC. This is at the time when the Sahara was beginning to dry out a second time, previously it had dried around 8000 BC so that time (by thousand BC) the Kiffian people may have migrated to the Nile Valley and mixed (or been absorbed into) with the more dominant African culture prevalent through Sudan and Ethiopia.

For me
